Oct. 30, 2012
STOCKTON, Calif.-- Despite a delay due to fog, Colorado State finished its second round at the Brookside Country Club with a 274 (-14), to give the team a two-day total of 553. The Rams are currently in sole possession of fifth place.
“We just kind of kept pace with everyone else,” Head Coach Christian Newton said. “Obviously we’ve played ok, and I don’t think we’ve played our best golf, but if we have someone shoot really low and have some other guys do it as well, it’s college golf and anything can happen.”
Sophomore Cameron Harrell continued his balanced play, shooting a 67 (-5) on the day, to follow his 70 (-2) in the first round. Harrell, who is in a tie for eighth place, has now recorded 11 birdies, as well as having a 4.4 scoring average on par fives.
“I got off to a slow start but I was very patient out there,” Harrell said. “I need to get off to a good start tomorrow, and if things aren’t going right, I need to just stay patient because I know there are many birdie opportunities out there.”
Cameron’s brother Kory was able to keep his solid play going, improving by a stroke to card a 69 (-3) today. He is in a tie for 21st place. Kory Harrell is also among the leaders in total pars, having 24 pars in two rounds.
Junior Parker Edens continued his consistency, firing another 70 (-2) after shooting an identical score in yesterday’s play, and now is currently in a tie for 26th. Edens, who now has tallied 26 pars in the first two rounds, trails only Kirby Pettitt and Denver’s Jordan Burgess in total pars.
Senior Kirby Pettitt, as well as leading the individuals in number of pars (29), shot a 72 (E) after his 69 (-3) yesterday, and is now tied for 29th. Freshman Dominic Kieffer improved by five strokes from the first round to post a 68 (-4) in the second round. Kieffer is also in a tie for 29th.
Kansas State (544) sits alone in first place, followed by BYU (549), Pacific (550), UC Davis (550), Colorado State (553), Nevada (554), Santa Clara (556), Charlotte (559), Denver (566), Sacramento State (575), Fresno State (576) and CSU Northridge (579).
