TUCSON, Ariz.- The Colorado State men’s golf team is four strokes out of the lead after Round 1 of the Mountain West Championship played on the Catalina Course of the OMNI Tucson National Resort Friday. Senior Zahkai Brown leads the 39-man field after 18 holes of play.

Brown fired a 5-under 66 in Round 1 including an eagle on the 15th hole and six birdies throughout the round. Johan de Beer of TCU and Alex Kang of SDSU are one stroke back at 67 (-4) tied in second place.

Brown’s start to the tournament pleased Head Coach Jamie Bermel.

“It was a solid start,” said Bermel. “Zahkai played real well today. He bogeyed a few holes coming in but, overall, a very good start to the tournament.”

Junior Kirby Pettitt is in fourth place with a 2-under 69. Sophomore Parker Edens is tied in 28th with a 3-over 74 followed by Freshman Cameron Harrell tied in 32nd with a 4-over 75. Senior Michael Wuertz rounded out the Rams lineup with an 8-over 79 tied 37th palce.

San Diego State leads the eight-team field with a 4-under 280 followed by New Mexico with a 3-under 281. Colorado State is in fourth place with an even-par 284.

Round 2 begins at 8 a.m. MT Saturday. Live stats will be available on GolfStat.com.
