MACON, Georgia- Colorado State finished in a tie for ninth at the Brickyard Collegiate. CSU finished with a three-day total of 882 (+18).
Junior Parker Edens continued to build on solid tournament, shooting a 72 (E) and finishing with three-round score of 219, good for a share of 25th place. Edens improved day-by-day, shaving off a stroke each round. Sophomore Cameron Harrell, who ended the first round shooting a 69 (-3), was over par the final two days carding a 76 (+4) on the second day and a 75 (+3) today in the final round. Harrell finished the tournament in a tie for 31st.
Coach Newton was proud of his team's effort, but was hoping for better results.
"Obviously it was a disappointing finish and it was disappointing all together," he said. "I don't want to make excuses for them but we played out of our element." When referring to the elements, it was specifically the geographical features of the southeast. "We struggled on the Bermuda grass greens, which was probably our biggest problem."
Senior Kory Harrell slipped up a bit after solid day yesterday, shooting a 75 (+3), and ending his tournament with a three-day total of 221. Fellow senior Kirby Pettitt carded a 76 in his final round, and finished with a 54-hole total of 225. Freshman Jordan Wetsch had his best day of the tournament, firing a 74 (+2), which included a hole-in-one on the par-3 fifth hole.
