The Colorado State Rams will travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., Sunday for the 43rd annual Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational. The 54-hole tournament is set to begin with two rounds Sunday at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. The final round will begin on Monday at 7:30 a.m. with tee times off of holes No. 1 and 10.
CSU tied New Mexico State for third place in last season’s competition. The Rams’ Ryan Peterson, who graduated in May, won the medalist honors with a 9-under-par 207. The tournament is played on the Eisenhower Golf Club’s Blue Course. Kirby Pettitt and Zahkai Brown played in last year’s Gene Miranda and have experience on the course. Pettitt finsihed in the top 10 with an even-par 216.
The Eisenhower Golf Club’s Blue Course is par 72 and stretches 7,363 yards. It was recently ranked 21st among the best college courses in the nation by Golfweek magazine.
The 19-team field: Air Force, Air Force JV, Ball State, Coastal Carolina, Colorado, Colorado State, Denver, North Carolina State, Northern Colorado, Northern Iowa, San Diego, Southern Utah, UCCS, UNLV, Utah, Utah State, UTEP, Weber State and Wyoming.
Brown, Pettitt, Mike Sorenson, MIchael Wuertz and Cameron Harrell will be competing for the Rams this week in Colorado Springs. Parker Eden will be competing as an individual. Brown is No. 3 in the early Mountain West rankings with a 71.00 stroke average. Pettitt sits at No. 8 with a 72.67. As the season gets into full swing, the Rams look to improve as a team.
