LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Colorado State men's golf team jumped out to a strong start on Day 1 of the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate, sitting in third place after two rounds behind top-10 performances from senior Parker Edens and junior Cameron Harrell, and a strong Round-2 finish by freshman Jimmy Makloski at the New Mexico State University Golf Course.

"Overall the guys played really well today," said head coach Christian Newton. "I'm very proud of Parker's steady performance. He did a great job of staying in the present. Cam continued his consistent play and Jimmy's second round was clutch with two birdies in the last few holes. We put ourselves in a good spot for tomorrow I expect great things."

Edens, who opened with a personal season-low 69 at last week's Alister MacKenzie Invitational before falling off the pace, regained his form carding back-to-back rounds of 1-under 70 on Monday. The Greeley, Colo., native sits in a three-way tie for second place heading into Tuesday's final round - just one stroke behind Northern Colorado's Ben Kreuger - alongside UTEP's Martin Simonsen and UMKC's Antoine Rozner.

"Today was good," said Edens. "I played really steady and solid.  I never got ahead of myself and kept hitting good shots. I had a lot of really good looks for birdie but just didn't make many; the greens are hard to putt on. We are a solid day away from a good result and looking forward to it. We need five guys playing well tomorrow and the results will fall in place."

Junior Parker Edens, who paced the Rams in each of their four tournaments this season heading into play this week, sits two strokes behind Edens. Harrell matched Eden's opening-round of 1-under 70, but finished 1-over in the second 18 to sit in a tie for eighth with host New Mexico State's Brett Walker even-par (140).

True freshman Jimmy Makloski bounced back from a slow start to close in strong fashion on Monday afternoon. The Pueblo, Colo., native opened with a 5-over 76, but finished at even-par on Round 2, to sit two strokes outside of the top-20 in a tie for 25th.

Junior Patrick Winther is one stroke behind Makloski in a tie for 32nd. Sophomore Dominic Kieffer slid into a tie for 76th in the 96-player field, with a second round of 11-over 82 after opening with a 74 in Round 1.

Host New Mexico State sits atop the team leaderboard, firing a two-round team score of 572 (+4), just two strokes ahead of UTEP (574), and three strokes in front of the Rams (575). Northern Colorado (581) and Air Force (587) round out the top-5 heading into Tuesday's final round.

Colorado State tees off in a shotgun start from Holes 1-4, beginning at 8 a.m. MT. The Rams will be paired in foursomes with golfers from New Mexico State, UTEP and Northern Colorado.
