SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.- The Colorado State men’s golf team finished Day 1 of the 10th annual Wyoming Cowboy Classic played on the North Course of Talking Stick Golf Club in third place Monday. Senior Michael Wuertz leads the field by 3-strokes heading into the final round.

“Mike Wuertz played like a senior today,” Said Bermel. “I couldn’t be more proud of him. It was a great effort. If he continues that on Tuesday, we will have a real shot at winning the team title as well. We need all five guys playing well. It should be a lot of fun Tuesday!”

Junior Mike Sorenson posted a season-best score of 5-under 65 in Round 1 followed by a 1-over 71 in Round 2 to finish tied in eighth place with a 136 (-4). Senior Zahkai Brown is tied in 44th place with a 71-70--141 (+1).
