FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Nevada men’s golf team closed out its first tournament of the year with a third-place finish at the Ram Masters Invitational on Tuesday.
The Wolf Pack finished with a 21 over 861 for the three-round tournament and was two shots back of champion Wichita State and a shot back of the host school, Colorado State. Nevada was six over after the first two rounds but came in with a 295 in the final round on Tuesday.
“I’m disappointed that we weren’t able to close this tournament out the way we wanted to but we will use this as a learning experience moving forward,” head coach Jacob Wilner said.
Individually, sophomore Zak Griffiths led the way for the Pack as he tied for fourth place at 214, which was four over at the par-70 Fort Collins Country Club. Newcomer Ryan Mulvany had Nevada’s low round of the day with a 71 on Tuesday and he moved into a tie for 11th in his first Division I tournament.
Brian Knoll recorded a top-20 finish with a tie for 16th after a 74 on Tuesday. Taylor Knoll shot 73 and placed 23rd while Gustavo Chuang tied for 36th.
Colorado State’s Jordan Wetsch won medalist honors with an even-par 210.
Nevada is off until Oct. 1-2 when it travels to the Squire Creek Invitational in Choudrant, La.
