MACON, Ga.- After 18 holes of competition, Colorado State is tied in 11th place at the Brickyard Collegiate. The 15-team field holds some of the nation’s best programs. Georgia Tech is tied for fifth in the Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches’ Poll and leads the tournament at 280 (-8).
Zahkai Brown paced the team through round 1. Brown posted a 2-under-par 70 and sits in a tie for eighth place. Mike Sorenson is tied in 25th with a 1-over-par 73.
Stiff competition and a tough course took its toll on Head Coach Jamie Bermel’s Rams.
“We played a little sloppy today,” said Bermel. “We need to figure out the greens. Zahkai and Mike played pretty well and now we have to get the other three playing better. The wind was really tricky today and it was difficult to figure out the wind direction. This is a really good field and a fairly difficult golf course.”
Kirby Pettitt carded a 78 while Parker Edens shot a 79. They are currently tied in 65th and 69th, respectively. K.C. Chang rounded out the lineup in 84th place shooting an 87 (+15).
Seth Reeves of Georgia Tech leads individually with a 7-under 65. Brooks Koepka of Florida State is one stroke behind Reeves with a 66 (-6).
Play continues Saturday and Sunday in Macon. Live stats are available on GolfStat.com.
