FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Steady play throughout changing weather and course conditions earned Rice University men’s golf a sixth-place finish at the Ram Masters Invitational on Tuesday with a 286-286-287—860 (+20).
Of his team’s finish at the tournament, head coach Justin Emil said, “The guys held it together coming down the stretch. They had the holes cut in the toughest locations and the guys ground out a 287, which was decent compared to the rest of the field. I was especially proud of Alex Levy’s -3 on the last five holes. He struggled for 45 holes but never gave up and that’s what we need to be a team that contends. Progress was made this week but we still have a lot of work to do. I’m excited about this group. They work hard and believe they can win.”
In the second tournament of his young career, Kevin Reilly rode the momentum of his opening-round 67 on Monday to claim 10th place with a 67-74-71—212 (+2). His nine birdies tied for eighth-most among the 84-golfer field.
As the squad’s lone senior, Landon Michelson continued his consistent play with 41 pars on 54 holes. His 71-71-72—213 (+4) earned a tie for 15th place and lowered his season stroke average to a team-best 71.17.
James Lee carded a career-best 69 in the second round to finish 27th overall with a 72-69-77—218 (+8). He holed eight birdies and ranked among the tournament leaders with a +2 mark on the course’s par-4 holes over the two-day event.
Joe Beck III nearly mirrored his performance in last week’s season opener as he improved each round to finish 41st overall with a 76-73-72—221 (+11). Freshman Alex Levy also improved throughout the tournament and tied for 60th place with a 78-75-72—225 (+15). The rookie did most of his damage on the par-5 holes, tying for 12th with a three-under-par mark on the event.
Denver came from 13 strokes down and stormed past host Colorado State on Tuesday with a 272 (-8) to claim the team title by one stroke at 847 (+7).
Denver’s Oskar Arvidsson and CSU’s Cameron Harrell tied for the individual medal at 204 (-6).
The fall season rolls on early next month as Rice travels to Baton Rouge, La. for the David Toms Intercollegiate on Oct. 5-6 at the University Golf Club.
