ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Colorado State men’s golf team opened play Friday at the 59th Annual William H. Tucker Intercollegiate, finishing 36 holes with rounds of 305 and 303 to sit alone in ninth place heading into Saturday’s final round at the UNM Championship Course.

“Today was a very challenging day on a championship course with difficult conditions,” said Rams’ head coach Christian Newton. “We showed spots of good play, and are getting better handling adverse conditions. I'm proud of how my guys fought out there. Finding the fourth score proved to be our problem today.”

Colorado State’s upperclassmen, junior Cameron Harrell and senior Parker Edens, closed the first day of action tied for 11th and 24th, respectively, anchoring the Rams’ efforts.

Harrell, coming off his first collegiate victory at the Ram Masters Invitational, continued his consistent play. The Colorado Springs native carded back-to-back rounds of 73 as he moved from a tie for 19th after the opening round into a tie for 11th through 18 holes in the field of 104.

Edens, after struggling with an opening round of 7-over 79, stormed back with a 2-under 70 in the second round. The senior from Greeley, Colo., tallied four birdies in the final round and added an eagle on the 539-yard No. 1 hole, to vault 49 spots on the leaderboard and into a tie for 24th, just one stroke outside of the top 20.

“I just got off to a bad start today; I turned it around and then finished poorly in the morning,” said Edens. “This afternoon I played fantastic golf. I had one bad hole but putted well and hit it well. Mentally I tried to focus well and stay in the moment in the tough conditions. It was quite the test but I had some fun today.”

Sophomore Dominic Kieffer sits seven strokes behind Edens in a tie for 61st at 12-over. He opened with a 79, and shaved two strokes off his score during the afternoon’s action to card a two-round score of 156.

Sophomore Brett Wilson (+16) and freshman Jimmy Makloski (+18) sit in ties for  82nd and 91st, respectively.

As a team, the Rams are three strokes ahead of 10th-place UTEP, and just eight strokes behind eighth-place San Diego State (600). Arizona State paces the field with a 5-under 571, followed by host New Mexico (582) in second place at 6-over. BYU (591) is alone in third place heading into Saturday’s final round, followed by UNLV and USC who round out the top 5 in a tie for fourth place at 17-over par.

Saturday’s final round begins with a shotgun start at 7:45 a.m. MT. The Rams will tee off of holes 8-11, grouped in foursomes with UTEP, Wichita State and rival Colorado. Live scoring for the final round is available at www.GolfStat.com.
