Buffs In Seventh At Bandon Dunes

Mar 17, 2012

 

     BANDON, Ore. - The University of Colorado men's golf team held its own despite finishing the day in a downpour as the Buffaloes are in seventh place after the first round of the 3rd Annual Bandon Dunes Championship, which was completed here Friday.

     No. 3 Washington is in the lead after turning in an even par 284 team score, good for a three-shot lead over No. 9 Oregon.  Colorado turned in a 12-over 296 to stand seventh, with the Buffs collectively turning in a fairly consistent performance with 14 birdies, 50 pars, 23 bogeys and only three holes double (two) or worse (one triple).

     Senior Kevin Kring and junior Jason Burstyn led the way Friday or the Buffaloes, as they are tied for 19th after turning in 2-over 73s on the 6,178-yard, par-71 Bandon Trails Black Course.  Both had identical rounds, scoring four birdies and eight pars against six bogeys on the black side of the scoring column.

     The other three Buffs on the trip all recorded 4-over 75s.  Junior Beau Schoolcraft and freshman David Oraee also had carbon copy scorecards, with two birdies, 11 pars, four bogeys and one double.  Junior Derek Fribbs was cruising along a 1-over par until the par-4, No. 15, where he was sidetracked by a triple bogey; otherwise, he had two birdies, 12 pars and three bogeys.

     "The guys did a solid job overall today, the last six holes we played it poured almost the entire time," head coach Roy Edwards said.  "So that was a little unfortunate but the way it goes with starting times, we were at the end of the starting wave and only four teams finished in good weather.  I still saw a few too many 'easy' mistakes out there where we made bogey on easy holes.  

     "Taking the weather into account, the guys did a good job and are in good position going into the second and third rounds."  

     Oregon's Jonathan Woo is the individual leader after carding a 3-under 68; only one other player broke 70, Washington's Charlie Hughes who shot a 69.

     The second round commences at 9:30 a.m. (MDT) Saturday, with the Buffaloes teeing off on No. 1; the third and final round is Sunday.
