STOCKTON, Calif.- Even after a very impressive three rounds of golf, the Rams finished sixth at the Pacific Invitational, shooting a 272 (-16) in the final round. Colorado State ended their three rounds with a team score of 825 (-39).
“We obviously played well for a large part of the round but weren’t able to finish out the round,” said Head Coach Christian Newton. “It helps to have five guys contributing each round. No one was totally out of it the whole tournament.”
Junior Parker Edens, who had a 2.73 par three average throughout the whole tournament, finished his final day at the Brookside Country Club with a 65 (-7), ending with a 54-hole score of 205 (-11). Edens finished in a tie for 14th. “I played very consistent all day, giving myself plenty of looks at birdies,” said Edens. “I missed a bunch of putts on the front nine, but stayed very patient and got my looks late to go in.”
Senior Kory Harrell, who finished in a tie for 17th place, recorded two more eagles on the day and fired a 67 (-5), giving him a final score of 206 (-10). Harrell had a 4.4 scoring average on par-fives, as well as being in a tie for the most eagles over the three rounds.
Sophomore Cameron Harrell fired a 70 (-2) in his last round, carding a 207 (-9) 54-hole total and finishing the tournament in a tie for 21st. Harrell came up with 18 birdies in his three rounds, good for fourth most in the individual field. Senior Kirby Pettitt ended his tournament by recording 43 pars, most by any player in the field. Pettitt also finished the Pacific Invitational with a 70 (-2) in his last round, giving him a total score of 211 (-5).
Freshman Dominic Kieffer kept his consistency going, shooting a 72 (E) in his last round and ended with a three-round score of 213 (-3).
This was the Rams final tournament until February, so Colorado State is looking to work hard and be ready to compete in the spring. “We will take a break from golf, hit the weight room hard, and hopefully finish strong academically,” said Coach Newton
Kansas State claimed the Pacific Invitational title by shooting a team score of 817 (-47). Kansas State was followed by Pacific (818), Nevada (818), UC Davis (819), BYU (820), Colorado State (825), Charlotte (826), Santa Clara (829), Denver (840), Sacramento State (851), Fresno State and CSU Northridge (862).
