Next on the tee...
The Colorado State men’s golf team, ranked 16th in the nation in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin performance index, tees off in Tucscon, Ariz., on Sunday and Monday at the National Invitational Tournament hosted by the University of Arizona. The tournament consists of 54 holes, 36 of which will be played on Sunday, with the final 18 being played on Monday. Both days will begin at 8:30 a.m. MT.
The tournament is held at the Omni Tucson National Golf Club. The par-72, 7,094-yard course is located in Tucson, Ariz.
The tournament will consist of 15 teams, including eight programs currently ranked in the top 50 by Golfweek.com. Colorado State enters the tournament ranked 16th, and will face formidable competition from No. 13 UNLV, No. 17 Texas, No. 18 TCU, No. 30 California, No. 36 Baylor, No. 41 New Mexico and No. 45 Arizona (two squads). Also competing are Houston, Kent State, SMU, Texas-El Paso, Tulsa and Wyoming.
• With their six-stroke victory last week at the Barona Collegiate Cup, the Colorado State men’s golf team captured its fifth team title of the season, tying the school record set during the 2003-04 season. With at least five tournaments remaining on the Rams’ slate, CSU will have an opportunity to tie the Mountain West Conference record of six team titles set by BYU in 1999-2000.
• Juniors Dustin Morris (70.62) and Bryce Hanstad (70.81), freshman Zahkai Brown (71.06) and senior Zen Brown (71.29) rank first, third, fourth and fifth, respectively, in the Mountain West Conference in stroke average. Morris took over the top spot from UNLV’s Eddie Olson after taking home medalist honors at last week’s Barona Collegiate Cup. Junior Riley Arp also ranks eighth on the list with a 71.76 stroke average.
• Morris picked up his second career tournament victory at the Barona Collegiate Cup, tallying a three-round score of 203 (-13). He becomes the first Rams golfer to record multiple individual titles in a career since Martin Laird and Nolan Martin won four and two tournaments, respectively, from 2000-04. Morgan Murphy, who won two individual titles in 1989, is the only other golfer in CSU history with multiple wins to his credit.
