STOCKTON, Calif.- After the second of three rounds Tuesday, the Colorado State men’s golf team is pacing the 12-team field at the Pacific Invitational held at the Brookside Country Club. Junior Kirby Pettitt is tied in second place after 36 holes of competition.

The wind made things tough on the Rams but Head Coach Jamie Bermel’s squad fought through it.

“It was very difficult conditions today,” said Bermel. “We played in 15-20 mile-per-hour winds all day. We got off to a slow start but played solid on the back nine.”

Pettitt fired another 2-under-par 69 to finish the day 69-69--138 (-4). He is in good position to take the lead, trailing tournament leader Kevin Lucas of Nevada by 1 stroke (66-71--137).

“Kirby battled all day,” said Bermel. “It was nothing fancy; just real solid golf. He has a chance to win as an individual and I think if he plays well, he is certainly capable.”

Junior Mike Sorenson carded a 2-over 73 to finish the day 70-73--143 (+1), tied in 10th place.  Sophomore Parker Edens finished the day tied in 23rd place with a 70-76--146 (+4). Freshman Cameron Harrell rounded out the scoring for the Rams tied in 27th, carding a 72-75--147 (+5).

Senior Zahkai Brown, usually at the top for the Rams, struggled in the windy conditions on Day 2. He finished the day 9-over-par, carding an 80. Brown is tied in 41st place (71-80--151) looking to move up the leaderboard in the final round Wednesday.

The Rams lead Oregon State and Nevada by two strokes with one round left. Bermel’s team is in a good position to grab its first tournament victory this season.

“It’s the last day and we’re in the lead; that’s why we play golf,” said Bermel. “I’m excited for the guys and it will be a great test on Wednesday.”

Round 3 begins Wednesday at 9 a.m. MT. Live stats will be available on GolfStat.com.
