Pack's McCoy nearly storms to tournament win
PHOENIX, Ariz. - CSU-Pueblo golfer Brandon McCoy (Jr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) 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.
McCoy made a statement at the tourney, proving that his first round -4 68 was no fluke, playing consistently for all three rounds. He turned in a -3 69 in the second round and followed that up with a -2 70 in the final round.
McCoy's finish was the highest of any RMAC team at the tournament. The RMAC was represented by five teams at the tournament - Western New Mexico, UC-Colorado Springs, Fort Lewis, Nebraska-Kearney and CSU-Pueblo.
McCoy's performance was, unfortunately, the only bright spot in a flat effort overall by the ThunderWolves, as no other Pack golfers managed to finish 48th place. The Pack's second best golfer at the tourney was Chad Novak (Fr., Pueblo, Colo.), who was +5 overall in 48th place.
As a squad, the ThunderWolves finished tied for 14th out of 20 teams, and fourth best among the five RMAC teams at the tournament.
