Rams at the Del Walker Intercollegiate
The Colorado State men’s golf program has experienced great success in the Del Walker Intercollegiate over the years, capturing three consecutive team titles in the tournament from 2007 to 2009. CSU is the only program in the tournament’s 17-year history to win three team titles. LBSU (2000 and 2013), UCLA (1997 and 2012) and Lamar (2004 and 2005) have also captured multiple team titles. Former Ram Zahkai Brown also captured the individual title at the 2008 event.
The Rams’ lineup
Colorado State will utilize the same lineup for the second consecutive tournament, leading with a trio of upperclassmen in junior Cameron Harrell, senior Parker Edens and junior Patrick Winther. Harrell makes his sixth straight start in the Rams’ No. 1 spot, while Edens is slotted in at No. 2 for the fourth consecutive event. Edens posted the Rams’ best individual finish (T23) last week at the weather-shortened John A. Burns Intercollegiate. Winther, in his first year at CSU as a transfer from Oklahoma State, has competed in the Rams’ lineup in four straight events dating back to the fall slate. Sophomore Dominic Kieffer, who joins Harrell and Edens as the only Rams to play ever round this season in the lineup, will be the Rams’ No. 4 player, while freshman Jimmy Makloski makes his third straight start, and fifth overall in seven tournaments. Freshman Logan Iverson returns to action for the first time since the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in October. Iverson will compete as an individual for the first time this season.
Last time out - John A. Burns Intercollegiate
The Colorado State men’s golf team finished tied for 11th in the 17-team field at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate after the final round of action was cancelled due to inclement weather. The Rams finished two strokes outside of the top 10, knotted with MW foe Nevada. Senior Parker Edens was the Rams’ top finisher, tallying rounds of 70 (-2) and 75 (+3) to finish 1-over (145) in a tie for 23rd. Edens was two strokes ahead of No. 1 Cameron Harrell, who finished tied for 35th in the 90-player fi eld. Junior Patrick Winther (5-over 149) tied for 48th, while sophomore Dominic Kieffer (150) and freshman Jimmy Makloski (151) were knotted in 56th and 64th, respectively. Freshman Alec Bone, competing as an individual, tallied a two-round score of 154 (+10) to finish tied for 77th, second among individual competitors.
