MACON, Georgia- The Ram's finished play today in eighth place, as they made their first cross-country trip of the season. Colorado State completed their first round with a team score of 293 (+5).
Sophomore Cameron Harrell ended his first round carding a 69 (-3), good enough for a tie in second place. Harrell played a solid bogey-free round, which was able to keep the Rams in contention for the next two days of golf. Junior Parker Edens finished today's action with a 74 (+2), which leaves him in a tie for 34th place.
Head Coach Christian Newton commented on his team's effort and saying that the trip to the southeast is something his team is going to have to adapt to. "Golf in this part of the country is different, and we have good players that will adjust accordingly. I can see them getting more comfortable as the tournament progresses," Coach Newton said.
Senior Kirby Pettitt, coming off of last week's victory, shot a 75 (+3), and freshman Jordan Wetsch having an identical score. Both players ended today in a tie for 45th place. Senior Kory Harrell completed his round firing a 76 (+4).
However, Coach Newton's Rams have a lot to build off and his team will look to begin tomorrow as today ended. "We made three birdies on our final hole, Parker finished strong birdieing three of his last four holes and Cameron's bogey free 69 kept us in the tournament," Newton said.
The Rams will look to catch Georgia, who is currently in the top spot after day one with a team score of 280. North Florida (283) sits in second place, followed by Princeton (286), Kansas (288) and Georgia Tech (289). Chattanooga and Virginia Tech are tied for sixth with team scores of 291. Augusta State is currently in ninth after shooting a combined 295, followed by the host school Mercer (296), Oklahoma (299), South Florida (300). Georgia State and College of Charleston had matching scores with a 301 and are tied in 13th, with Air Force (312) in 15th.
