Next on the tee
The Colorado State men's golf team travels to Stanford, Calif., to compete in The Goodwin, formerly known as the Stanford United States Intercollegiate. The tournament was renamed this week in honor of former Stanford head coach Wally Goodwin.
The tournament will be held at the Stanford Golf Course in Stanford, Calif. The course will feature a par-70 layout that stretches 6,727 yards.
Following practice rounds on Thursday, the 54-hole tournament will be played over three days, Friday-Sunday, with 18 holes of competition slated for each day. Golfers will tee off in groups off of Holes 1 and 10, beginning at 9 a.m. MT/8 a.m. PT each day.
The tournament field for The Goodwin features 18 teams, including 13 teams ranked in the top-100 of the latest Golfweek/Sagarin rankings (March 17), and five members of the Mountain West. CSU, ranked No. 101, will match up against host Stanford (No. 7), as well as Fresno State, Loyola Marymount, No. 38 Northwestern, No. 48 Oregon, No. 32 San Diego State, No. 95 San Francisco, San José State, No. 91 St. Mary's, No. 41 TCU, No. 14 UAB, No. 16 UCLA, No. 51 UC Davis, No. 26 UNLV, No. 24 USC, No. 15 Washington and No. 86 Washington State.
Rams at The Goodwin
The Colorado State men's golf program returns to the field at The Goodwin for the first time since the 2006-07 season when the Rams finished seventh in the 15-team field at the event, formerly known as the United States Intercollegiate. The Rams were led by former standout Zen Brown, who finished in a tie for 12th during his sophomore campaign. The Rams closed that season by returning to the NCAA Regional, after missing out on postseason play the previous year. It began a run of six consecutive seasons in which the Rams earned a postseason berth.
The Rams' lineup
Colorado State will tee off at The Goodwin with the Rams' sixth different lineup combination of the season. The top of the Rams' lineup remains familiar, with junior Cameron Harrell starting his eighth-consecutive tournament in the No. 1 position. Senior Parker Edens, is the Rams' No. 2 for the fifth-consecutive tourney. He and Harrell, along with sophomore Dominic Kieffer are the only Rams to play in all 23 rounds for the Rams entering play this weekend in Stanford. Kieffer and junior Patrick Winther, who is making his sixth straight appearance in the CSU lineup, swap spots with Winther slotted at No. 3 and Kieffer playing in the No. 4 position. Alec Bone, a true freshman from Phoenix, Ariz., makes his first appearance in the Rams' lineup, at the No. 5 position. Bone previously competed as an individual in three tournaments this season, last teeing off at the Del Walker Intercollegiate in early March. Bone's first opportunity to score for the team in his collegiate career marks the eighth consecutive tournament in which a true freshman has competed in the Rams' lineup, with classmates Jimmy Makloski (six starts) and Logan Iverson (one) each cracking the Rams' top-5 at some point this year.

Last time out - ASU Thunderbird Invitational
The Colorado State men's golf team captured a tie for 12th-place against the 15-team field at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational, March 21-23, at Arizona State's Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Ariz. The Rams were in position for a top-10 finish after the first two days of competition, but slid into 12th place during the final round. As a team, the Rams shot 287-292-300--879 to finish at 27 over par, 13 strokes outside of the top 10 and 62 strokes off the pace set by team champion and host Arizona State (-35). The Rams were led by junior Cameron Harrell, who finished as the Rams' top performer for the sixth time in eight tournaments on the season. Harrell carded a three-round score of 216 (+3), to finish tied for 30th. Senior Parker Edens (220) and junior Patrick Winther (222) finished for 43rd and 50th, respectively. Sophomore Dominic Kieffer (223) placed in a tie for 54th, while freshman Jimmy Makloski tied for 75th in the 81-player field.
