Eric Wolf

The Colorado State men’s golf team wrapped up its season in the Mountain West Championship this weekend at the OMNI Tucson National Resort-Catalina Course in Tucson, Arizona. After the three day, 54-hole event that concluded Sunday, the Rams finished in a tie for fourth place with San Diego State on the team leader board. The Rams finished at four-under 860 for the tournament, 14 strokes behind team leader UNLV.

The highest individual finisher for the Rams was senior Dominic Kieffer who roared through his final round, finishing at six-under par Sunday and five-under for the tournament. Kieffer’s strong push propelled him up 20 spots on the leader board, and pulled him to within four strokes of the individual champion, Trevor Clayton (Fresno State).

The total score of top four scorers from each team is counted towards the team total. Sophomore Max Oelfke and Junior Jimmy Makloski tied for 15th after both finishing the tournament with a two-under 214. Redshirt Freshman Kyler Dunkle rounded out the Ram’s scorers, finishing in a tie for 33rd place as he finished five-over for the tournament. Makloski made tournament history Saturday with a hole-in-one on the fourth hole. It was the first hole-in-one in the history of the Mountain West tournament championship.
