SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.- The Colorado State men’s golf team wrapped up the 10th annual Wyoming Cowboy Classic played on the North Course of Talking Stick Golf Club in fifth place Tuesday. Senior Michael Wuertz finished the day tied in first but lost in a scorecard playoff with Kansas State’s Ben Juffer.

Wuertz and Juffer ended the 54-hole tourney with matching scores of 198 (-12). Juffer captured the title by shooting a 67 in Round 3 while Wuertz finished with an even-par 70.

Head Coach Jamie Bermel watched it all play out in Scottsdale.

“Mike didn’t play very well,” said Bermel, “but he managed his game. Juffer birdied the last two holes so it’s not like he lost the tournament. He had a great week and I am proud of the way he played.”

Junior Mike Sorenson carded 4-over-par 74 in the final round combing for a 65-71-74--210 (E). In the 121-man field Sorenson finished the tournament tied in 28th place. Senior Zahkai Brown finished the tournament tied in 49th with a 71-70-72--213 (+3).

Freshman Cameron Harrell tied in 62nd place with a 216 (+6) and Junior Kirby Pettitt tied in 101st place with a 223 (+13).

In the 23-team field, CSU finished fifth with a 6-under-par 834. Kansas State took the team title with an 826 (-14). CU placed second with an 828 (-12).

Coach Bermel hoped for better play with a shot at the title.

“As for the team, we just didn’t play well and didn’t manage the course very well,” said Bermel. “We had to count 6 penalty strokes today and lost by 8. Hopefully, we can learn from this and perform better the next time we are close to the lead.”  
 
The Rams will be back in action on April 27-28 in Provo, Utah for the Cougar Classic hosted by BYU. It will be the last tournament before the Mountain West Championship.
