FORT COLLINS, Colo.- In newly appointed Head Coach Christian Newton’s first fall season in Fort Collins, the Rams golf squad found itself becoming a very consistent group.
The Rams began the season with a fourth place finish at the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational. Colorado State then hosted its first ever tournament, the Ram Masters Invitational, where redshirt freshman Jordan Wetsch captured the individual crown, as well as the team finishing in a close second place. At the Mark Simpson Invitational, Kirby Pettitt claimed the Rams second individual win in as many weeks.
Colorado State then traveled to Macon, Georgia to partake in the Brickyard Collegiate, where the Rams finished in 9th, the teams worst finish of the fall season. A strong comeback at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational saw the Rams end the tournament in third place. To finalize the half-season, Colorado State completed the Pacific Invitational in sixth, but finished with an 825 (-39), the team’s best three-round score of the fall.
As it stands now, the Rams have five of the top fifteen stroke averages in the Mountain West Conference, as well as two in the top five in Parker Edens and Kirby Pettitt. Kory Harrell currently leads the nation with six eagles, and Jordan Wetsch is the nation’s leader in average putts at 27.5. The Colorado State team as a collective group leads the nation in birdies with 289 and has the smallest double bogey average with .32 double bogeys per-round. The Rams are also currently ranked 55th in the country.
The Rams will begin the spring season with an Alumni Match in Phoenix on February 9th. Colorado State’s first real action will take place in Hawaii in the John A. Burns Intercollegiate on February 20th to the 22nd. The Rams then must travel to Fresno, California to take part in the Fresno State Lexus Classic from March 4th to the 5th.
After a two-day stint in California, the Rams will do a tour of duty in Arizona, traveling to Goodyear and Scottsdale, competing in the Desert Shootout and the Cowboy Classic. The Rams last regular season outing will take place in Provo, Utah at the Cougar Classic, April 26th-27th and a week later, the Mountain West Championship will be played in Tucson, Arizona from May 2nd to the 4th.
