After closing the first day of the UCCS Spring Championship in second place, CSU-Pueblo turned in the lowest team score in the field Tuesday, falling to third in the third of four RMAC golf tournaments of the season.
CSU-Pueblo junior Brandon McCoy, fresh off a near-win at the Grand Canyon ThunderBird Invitational, has been named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Men's Golfer of the Week, the RMAC announced Thursday.
CSU-Pueblo golfer Brandon McCoy was one of the most consistent golfers in the 100-golfer field at the Grand Canyon ThunderBird Invite Tuesday, finishing in second place with a stellar -9 207 over three rounds.
After an impressive first two rounds at the Grand Canyon Invitational in Phoenix, Ariz., the ThunderWolves saw their production drop off in the tourney's final round, finishing 15th out of 18 teams at the competitive tourney.
The terms "ThunderWolves men's golf" and "last place finish" don't quite fit together, but it was the nasty truth for the Pack men's golf team at the second RMAC meet in Kearney, Neb. Tuesday, finishing last out of eight assembled RMAC men's golf teams.
This weekend provided the ThunderWolves with the first opportunity to debunk a predicted sixth place finish, according to the RMAC preseason men's golf poll. The Pack was able to do that, but only to a point, finishing fifth at the first RMAC Invite of the season at Regis.
As a team, the ThunderWolves did what you hope any golf team can over the span of a three-round tournament - consistently cut strokes. But an uncharacteristic first round lets the Pack out of the running as they finished third at the Mines/Regis invite in Lakewood Tuesday.
While senior David Duarte earned his second consecutive RMAC preseason all-conference selection, the overall team was predicted to have a major dropoff, according to the RMAC preseason men's golf poll, released Thursday.
