OAHU, Hawaii- The Rams in their second day of play at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate turned in a score of 304 (+16), currently good for a share of sixth place. Colorado State has compiled a two-day score of 596 (+20).
Head Coach Christian Newton saw his guys play strongly to begin the day, but his players tapered off a bit toward the end of the round.
“We got off to a good start,” said Newton. “But after the first five holes not a whole lot went right today.”
The weather in Oahu was a factor again in the second round, but Coach Newton is looking for a strong finish in the final round at Turtle Bay Resort.
“The conditions were just like they have been all week and we just didn’t respond well today. Fortunately, we didn’t hurt ourselves too much. A good team effort will go a long ways tomorrow.”
Junior Parker Edens, who shot a 77 (+5) in yesterday’s action, recovered today to shoot a 73 (+1). Edens was the only Ram to improve from his first round score, while jumping from 45th to 27th place.
“It was good today,” said Edens. “I never really felt comfortable yesterday and had to be really patient. But today I felt really good but it tested my patience again and eventually started making some putts late in the round.”
Senior Kirby Pettitt recorded one birdie and five bogeys on the day while shooting a 76 (+4). Pettitt has a two-round score of 149 is now in a share of 18th place. Sophomore Cameron Harrell, who led the Rams with an even par 72 in the first round, shares 18th place with his teammate Pettitt after a 77 (+5) in his second round. Harrell carded birdies on his first and eighteenth holes.
Freshmen Dominic Kieffer and Jordan Wetsch posted identical 78’s (+6) in their second 18 holes. Kieffer has a two-round score of 151 (+7) and is placed in 34th, while Wetsch has a two day total of 152 (+8), good for a tie in 44th place.
The number-one ranked California continued their exceptional play by following a 284 (-4) first round to record a 282 (-6) in their second round, giving them a 36-hole total of 566 (-10). California is trailed by 68 BYU (582), 27 Texas A&M (589), 5 New Mexico (590), 72 Arizona (593), 61 Colorado State (596), 32 UNLV (596), Hawaii-Hilo (597), 60 Washington State (599), 94 Hawaii (603), 106 Texas El-Paso (608), 115 Nevada (613), 98 Denver (617), Hawaii B (621), 134 Utah (627) and BYU-Hawaii (629).
