HOLYOKE, Colo.-The Colorado State men’s golf defended their Colorado Cup title on Monday against rival CU in the Ryder Cup style event at Ballyneal Golf and Hunt Club. The Rams remained undefeated against the Buffs in the annual event by capturing their third title in as many years winning 6-4. The team won the event in 2009 6-4 and then defeated the Buffs 5 ½ -4 ½ in 2010.
The competition began Monday morning with three four-ball matches. CSU’s Kirby Pettitt and Mike Sorenson edged CU’s Jason Burstyn and Kevin Kring 7 and 6, and the Rams’ Cameron Harrell and Steve Sorenson beat the Buffs’ David Oraee and Derek Fribbs 2 and 1. CSU seniors Zahkai Brown and MIchael Wuertz lost their match to Sebastian Heisele and Beau Schoolcraft 3 and 2, but the Rams headed into into the individual matches with a 2-1 lead.
The afternoon continued with seven individual match ups. Pettitt and Harrell went on to claim their second points of the competition. Pettitt beat Schoolcraft 6 and 5 and Harrell beat Burstyn 2 and 1. Parker Edens and Brown also won their individual matches.
Mike and Steve Sorenson, along with Wuertz, were unable to earn a point in their individual matches.
Head Coach Jamie Bermel had a hard time crediting just one of his players.
“It was a great team win,” said Bermel, “A total team effort. Everyone played well and I was extremely pleased with the effort.”
The Rams are back in action on Oct. 7 at the Brickyard Collegiate in Macon, Ga.
