TEMPE, Ariz. – The Colorado State men’s golf team struggled during the last day of action at the Thunderbird Intercollegiate, falling into a tie for 12th place with a final-round team score of 300 (+16) on Sunday afternoon at Arizona State’s Karsten Golf Course.

The Rams closed the tournament knotted with Hawai’i, 13 strokes outside of the top 10. Host Arizona State pulled away from the field for a wire-to-wire victory, shooting a team score of 810 (-35), 20 strokes ahead of second-place Iowa (837). Arizona (847) and Pepperdine (848) finished third and fourth, respectively, while Iowa State carded an 851 to round out the top 5 in the team standings.

ASU’s Jon Rahm, who led throughout the tourney, ran away with the individual title, carding a three-round score of 192 (-21) to finish eight strokes ahead of Arizona’s Alex McMahon.

Rams’ junior Cameron Harrell, the team leader in stroke average, once again paced CSU in the final round.  Harrell, who opened the tournament with rounds of 71 (E) and 73 (+2), carded a one-over 72 during Sunday’s final round to finish the tournament in a tie for 30th with a three-round score of 216 (+3) on the weekend.

Behind Harrell, three Rams carded rounds of 76 (+5) to figure into the team score for CSU on Sunday. Senior Parker Edens carded a three-round score of 220 (+7) to finish tied for 43rd, two strokes ahead of junior Patrick Winther (222) who closed the tourney tied for 50th at 9-over par. Sophomore Dominic Kieffer fell into a tie for 54th, shooting a score of 10-over 223 for the tourney.

Also competing for the Rams was freshman Jimmy Makloski. After firing an opening round of 80 on Friday, Makloski bounced back with a 2-over 73 on Saturday. But he carded two double bogeys on the front nine of Sunday’s final round and was unable to dig out of the early hole during his round.

“Today was a struggle out there for our team,” said Harrell. “Somehow we need to find a way to get better these next couple days so we can put up a good showing next weekend in Stanford.”

Colorado State returns to action Friday, traveling to Palo Alto, Calif., for three days at the Stanford Intercollegiate.
