STOCKTON, Calif.- The Colorado State men’s golf team closed the Pacific Invitational, played at the Brookside Country Club, in third place Wednesday. Junior Kirby Pettitt finished the tournament tied in third place, his season-best finish.
In the last tournament of the 2011-12 season’s fall portion, the Rams captured their second Top-3 finish of the season. Head Coach Jamie Bermel’s squad hoped for better but look to second half of the season to fulfill those hopes.
“We came up a little short today,” said Bermel. “I’m disappointed in third place but it happens. We were just a little sloppy on the last three holes. We need to get in the classroom, have a strong finish to the semester, and get ready for a great run in the spring.”
Pettitt carded a 1-over-par 72 in the final round to finish 69-69-72--210 (-3). Kevin Lucas of Nevada took the individual title with a 66-71-70--207 (-6).
Junior Mike Sorenson tied for 18th place with a 70-73-74--217 (+4). Senior Zahkai Brown and sophomore Parker Edens tied in 25th place. Brown shot a 3-under 68 in the final round to move up from 41st place. He finished the tournament with a 71-80-68--219 (+6). Edens posted a 70-76-73--219 (+6).
Freshman Cameron Harrell combined for a 72-75-73--220 (+7) and tied for 31st place.
Oregon State and Nevada tied for the team title posting an 855 (+3). OSU beat Nevada in a playoff to win the Pacific Invitational.
Colorado State resumes play on Feb. 3 when they head to Phoenix, Ariz., for the Dual in the Desert.
