COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado State men's golf team finished play at the 2013 Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational on Monday, closing the season-opening tournament in a tie for 12th place behind the steady play of junior Cameron Harrell who carded a third consecutive round of even-par 72 to finish 15th overall in the field of 88.

"We played the front 2-under with the counters today, so we were close but failed to close out the round," said Head Coach Christian Newton. "We are all disappointed but certainly not discouraged. In 6 days we play our home event, so we have to forget this one and move forward immediately."

Harrell, who paced the Rams with a three-round score of 216, stormed out to a strong start sitting at 3-under through 13 holes, before closing out with three bogies in the final five holes to finish at even-par for a third consecutive round.

The Colorado Springs native echoed his coach's sentiments, saying: "We didn't finish today off as well as we hoped to, but we have a week to regroup and really fine-tune everything we need for our home tournament."

Sophomore Dominic Kieffer shaved a stroke off his second-round total with a 2-over 74 in Monday's final round.  He closed the tournament four strokes off Harrell's pace in a tie for 34th with a three-round score of 220 (71-75-74).

Senior Parker Edens, junior newcomer Patrick Winther and sophomore Brett Wilson each carded rounds of 76 (+4) on Monday. Edens finished tied for 52nd with a three-round total of 225 (+9), while Winther carded a 227 (+11) to tie for 59th, one stroke ahead of Wilson who tied for 65th.

Rams' true freshman Alec Bone, playing as an individual in his collegiate debut, carded a three-round score of 8-over 224 to grab a share of 48th in the 88-player field.

Host Air Force held on for the team title, carding a 286 (-2) to finish with a 13-under par total of 849, 12 strokes ahead of second-place UTEP (861). Rivals Colorado and Wyoming finished tied for third at 3-over (867), while Mountain West Conference newcomer Nevada rounded out the top 5 with a score of 869 (+5). 

The Falcons' Kyle Westmoreland took home medalist honors on his home course, tallying a 204 (-12) to finish ahead of teammate Matthew Dunn and UTEP's Frederik Dreier who tied for second with a 209 (-7).

The Rams return home to Fort Collins to begin preparations for CSU's own Ram Masters Invitational presented by Pedersen Toyota. CSU hosts the tournament, now in its second year, at the Fort Collins Country Club next Monday and Tuesday.
