The Colorado State men’s golf team will head to Fairfax, Calif., for the Alister MacKenzie Invitational Monday-Tuesday. The 54-hole tournament is slated to begin with two rounds on Monday at 9 a.m. MT. The final round will begin at 8:45 a.m. MT on Tuesday.
The Rams finished the 2010 Alister MacKenzie Invite in sixth place. Zahkai Brown was just outside the top 10 with his 11th-place finish, carding a 206 (-7).
The 2011 Alister MacKenkie will be played on the Meadow Club golf course. Meadow Club is par 71 and stretches 6,717 yards. The course was designed by Alister MacKenzie. After building the Fairfax, Calif., course in 1927, MacKenzie went on to build Augusta National Golf Club with golf legend Bobby Jones.
The 16-team field is made up of BYU, Cal, Colorado, Colorado State, Fresno State, New Mexico State, Oregon, Oregon State, Pacific, San Diego State, San Francisco, San Jose State, UC Davis, UC Irvine, Utah and Washington State. The field includes highly ranked teams from the Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches’ Poll such as San Diego State (No. 14) and Cal (No. 15).
Zahkai Brown, Mike Sorenson, Kirby Pettitt, Mike Wuertz and Cameron Harrell will be swinging for Head Coach Jamie Bermel in Fairfax this week. Brown ranks No. 6 with an average of 71.56 stokes per round among Mountain West golfers with nine or more rounds played. Pettitt ranks No. 12 with a 72.56. The Rams struggled last week at the Brickyard Collegiate and look to turn things around before the fall portion of the season comes to an end. Live stats will be available on GolfStat.com.
