DENVER, Colo. -
On the final day of the Ron Moore Invitational hosted by the University of Denver, the Cowboy golf team showed improvement and fired their best round of the tournament on Tuesday. The Cowboys finished the tournament, which was held at the Green Valley Ranch Golf Club in Denver, in 16th place.
"We played much better today than we did in the first two rounds. It was nice to see our guys come back after a tough day yesterday," said Wyoming golf coach Joe Jensen. "This was just one of those tournaments where, with our young team, we pressed and put added pressure on ourselves. We have high expectations and goals but this week we let those affect us and didn't play as well as we are capable. However, sometimes that is okay as long as we can learn from our mistakes.
"I am encouraged that, as a team, everyone is very close to playing the type of golf we expect to play. We haven't quite turned the corner but we are getting closer to it."
On Tuesday, the Cowboys shot their best round of the tournament with a team total of 304 (+16). The Cowboys finished with a three round total of 925 (+61) and finished 16th in the tournament.
Individually, sophomore Zach Zaremba had the best day for the Cowboys and shot a 71 (-1) on Tuesday. Zaremba was UW's highest finisher in the tournament with a 49th place score of 225 (+9). Sophomore Mike May concluded his best tournament of the fall by shooting a 76 (+4) on Tuesday. May finished the tournament with a season best 227 (+11) and tied for 58th place.
Colorado won the tournament with a three round team score of 825 (-39). Air Force finished second and was the only other team under par with a three round total of 859 (-5).
After taking next weekend off, the Cowboys will continue the fall season on Fri.-Sat., Sept. 26-27 in Albuquerque, N.M. The Pokes will be competing in the William H. Tucker Invitational which is hosted by the University of New Mexico.
