COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – For the first time in his collegiate career, Colorado State senior Ryan Peterson has been named the Mountain West Conference Men's Golfer of the Month for September.
This is the third such award bestowed upon a CSU athlete this week. Pete Thomas (football) and Megan Ploudre (volleyball) were each named MWC Player of the Week in their respective sports.
Peterson, who claimed medalist honors at the MWC championship this May, opened the season with a powerful statement, winning the individual title at the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Sept. 19-20.
The senior from Eagan, Minn., carded a three-round-total of 207 at the par 72, 7,363-yard Eisenhower Golf Club - Blue course. The score was good enough to give him a five stroke margin over his closest competition. He was the only golfer to post multiple scores under 70, with a 69 in the first round and a tournament-low tying 68 in the second.
To finish out the month, Peterson shot a 213 (-3) at the Mark Simpson Colorado Invitational in Erie, Colo. Only four strokes off of the lead, he tied for fifth place in the field of 91. In the final round of the tournament, Peterson led the Rams’ effort, recording a 4-under-par 68.
Peterson, a business administration major at CSU, currently leads the MWC with a scoring average of 70.00 over six rounds.
