FAIRFAX, Calif.- The Rams finished day one at the Meadow Club in a tie for third with BYU, Wichita State and San Diego State while shooting a 559 (-9) as a team. Colorado State compiled two consistent rounds, firing a 279 in the morning and a 280 in the afternoon.
Junior Parker Edens carded a two-round total of 139 (-3), with a first round three-under par and an even second round. Sophomore Cameron Harrell also shot a 139, including a one-under first round and a two-under second round. Both players are in a tie for 17th place.
The Rams are currently 26 strokes behind the number-one ranked California (533), and even though a comeback seems unlikely, Head Coach Christian Newton understands that his team has a chance to show these national powerhouses the Rams are not going down without a fight.
“This is probably going to be the strongest field we see all year,” Coach Newton said. “We have a chance to beat a bunch of teams that are going to be competing for a national championship.”
Freshman Dominic Kieffer shot identical rounds, carding two season-low 70’s to give him a two-round total of 140 (-2), and he is currently in a tie for 24th. Senior Kirby Pettitt bounced back from a five-over par first round to shoot a one-under in the second round. Pettitt, who is in a tie for 55th, shot a two-round total of 146, while fellow senior Kory Harrell ended his day with a total score of 147 and sits in a tie for 58th.
California is currently in the top spot, followed by San Francisco (542), Colorado State, BYU (559), Wichita State (559), San Diego State (559), Fresno State (561), Oregon State (562), UC Davis (563), Colorado (564), San Jose State (568), Arizona State (571), Oregon (571), Michigan (580), Nevada (583) and Hawaii (585).
