ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Colorado State junior Cameron Harrell led the way for the third straight tournament, pacing the Rams men’s golf team in a ninth-place finish against an impressive field at the William H. Tucker Intercollegiate at the UNM Championship Course.

“We had the fifth-lowest round of the day and I feel like we left tons of shots out there,” said CSU head coach Christian Newton. “Playing in these tough conditions on a championship course setup will be very valuable for us moving forward. In addition we picked up several nice wins on some good teams.”

The Rams notched head-to-head victories against some strong opponents, including rivals Colorado and Wyoming, as well as UTEP, New Mexico State, UT Arlington, Arizona, Wichita State and UTSA, as Harrell carded a 4-over 76 to hold on for his third consecutive top-20 finish to open the season. Harrell finished 15th in the Rams’ season-opener at the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational before tying for medalist honors at CSU’s own Ram Masters Invitational in his second outing of the fall. 

“The course played tough this week and we hung in there every day and fought through all 54 holes,” said Harrell of the team effort turned in by the Rams.  “We have a lot of positives this week from playing in hard conditions. We just need to learn from that and have a good couple weeks of practice leading up to our next tournament.”

Harrell finished just ahead of Rams’ senior Parker Edens who figured into the scoring in the final round with a 5-over 77 to finish tied for 27. Edens closed the tourney with a three-round score of 226 (+10).

Sophomore Dominic Kieffer and freshman Jimmy Makloski scored the lowest rounds of the day for the Rams, carding matching 75s (+3). Kieffer closed the tournament with a three-round 231 (+15) in a tie for 49th, while Makloski’s 237 (+21) proved good enough for a tie for 77th. Both golfers moved up the leaderboard on the day, with Kieffer ascending 12 spots from 61st, and Makloski jumping 14 spots after closing Round 2 in a tie for 91st.

Sophomore Brett Wilson closed the tournament tied for 80th in the 104-player field. Wilson bounced back from a second-round 83, improving five strokes in Saturday’s final round to card a three-round total of 238 (+22).

UNM’s Gavin Green and Andrej Bevins tied for medalist honors with three-round scores of 211 (-5). The Lobos ran away with the team title, shooting 863 (-1) to finish 18 strokes ahead of second-place Arizona State. USC (887), UNLV (888) and BYU (894) rounded out the top five.

Next up, the Rams travel to Sonoma, Calif., to compete in the Alister MacKenzie Invitational hosted by Cal. The two-day tournament is scheduled for Oct. 14-15.
