Sept. 19, 2003
Colorado Springs, Colo. - The Wyoming Cowboy golf team opened up the first day of the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational shooting an opening round 290, two shots over par. The Cowboys sit in a three-way tie for third place with host Air Force and Boise State in the 18 team field.
"I thought well played pretty good today, but not great," said UW head golf coach Joe Jensen. "Our guys had trouble putting today. The greens were fast and they just couldn't adjust. We need to improve on that tomorrow."
UW junior Matthew Brunk, from Ft. Collins, Colo., led the way for the Pokes with a one under par performance of 71 after the first day of competition. Mike Mezei from Texas-San Antonio holds the top spot after shooting a first round of 66.
The tournament is being hosted by the Air Force Academy at the Eisenhower Golf Course in Colorado Springs, Colo. The second round of the tourney is scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m., Mountain time, on Saturday.
The University of Texas-San Antonio leads all teams with a six shot under par performance of 282. The Roadrunners hold a five stroke lead over second place New Mexico JV (287) and six strokes over third place Denver (288).
"This is a big tournament," added Jensen. "We really need to finish strong here. We are off to a decent start, but we are looking to have a big finish.
The first round of the tournament was played on the
Eisenhower Blue Course which measures 7,301 yards and plays
to a par of 72.
