STOCKTON, Calif.- The Colorado State men’s golf team sits in fourth place after Day 1 of the Pacific Invitational Monday at the Brookside Country Club. The team combined for a 280 (-4), just two strokes behind tournament leaders Denver and Nevada.
Junior Kirby Pettitt paced the team, tied in 10th place after carding a 2-under 69 in the first round of competition. Junior Mike Sorenson and sophomore Parker Edens are tied in 14th place. Both are at 1-under-par 70. Senior Zahkai Brown is at even-par 71 in a tie for 20th place.
Freshman Cameron Harrell shot a hole-in-one on the par-3 14th hole to finish Day 1 tied in 31st place at 72 (+1). Harrell’s ace was a first for Head Coach Jamie Bermel.
“For the first time in my 20-plus years of coaching, one of my guys shot a hole in one,” said Bermel. “Thirty minutes later Zahkai’s tee shot lipped out on the same hole!”
The Rams are in a good position to make a move up the leaderboard on Day 2.
“We got off to a great start today,” said Bermel. “We were 7-under after four holes and then just played a little sloppy. We are 2 stokes out of first and I’m confident we will play better the next two rounds.”
Denver and Nevada are tied at 278 (-6), leading 12-team field. Olafur Loftsson of Charlotte leads all individuals with a 6-under 65. Nevada’s Kevin Lucas is in second place with a 66 (-5).
Play continues Tuesday with Round 2 beginning at 9 a.m. MT. Live stats will be provided by GolfStat.com.
