GOODYEAR, Ariz.- Colorado State managed to card a 295 (+11) in the final round of the 2013 Desert Shootout, good for a final score of 861 (+9).  The Rams finished in sole possession of 7th place. 

Head Coach Christian Newton saw the weather differentiate, and Colorado State had a hard time adjusting to the rapid occurrence. 

"The greens firmed up considerably today," said Coach Newton.  "We didn't adjust to the changing conditions very well."

Junior Parker Edens finished with a third-round score of 75 (+4), good for a three-round score of 210 (-3).  Edens finished with 13 birdies in three rounds, as well as being second in par-four scoring average, and finishing in a tie for third place.

"I was basically in complete control of my golf ball for the first two days and putted great," said Edens.  "I've been working really hard with my putting, so seeing some results is giving me great confidence."

Freshman Dominic Kieffer had his best round at the Palm Valley Golf Club, where he shot a 70 (-1) in his final round.  Kieffer finished with a total score of 217 (+4), good for a share of 33rd place.  Senior Kory Harrell recorded a 76 (+5) in his last 18 holes, and finished in a share of 40th place.

Fellow senior Kirby Pettitt improved from his 75 (+4) in yesterday's play to shoot a 74 (+3) in his final round of action, finishing in a tie for 50th place.  Sophomore Cameron Harrell had his worst round of the three, carding a 77 (+6), while finishing with a three-round total of 221 (+8).  Competing as an individual, Brett Wilson shot a 79 (+8) in his final day and finished in 95th.

BYU maintained its second-round lead to capture the 2013 Desert Shootout title by shooting a three-day score of 838 (-14).  BYU was followed by Denver (848), Baylor (850), Wichita State (858), Southern Utah (858), Nebraska (859), Colorado State (861), Tulsa (865), Air Force (865), Kansas (865), Idaho (865), Illinois (866), New Mexico State (874), Kansas State 877), Wyoming (887) and Boise State (891).
