FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Pacific men's golf team was ninth after the first round, but fell back to 11th in the second round of Colorado State's Ram Masters Invitational presented by Pedersen Toyota Monday. The Tigers enter Tuesday's final round 12 strokes out of fifth, at +24 (584).

The Tigers shot 289 through the first 18 on the par 70 course at Fort Collins Country Club, good enough for a tie for ninth at +9.  But in the afternoon session, a harsher wind replaced the still morning conditions, and scores dropped across the board. The Tigers posted a second round 295 (+14).

Anthony Madrid shot 70 in the first round, and turned in a second round 74 to sit in 31st overall at +4 (144). After a first round 74, Jee Horsangchai led the Tigers in the second round with a 71, putting him 35th in the field at +5 (145).

Casey Scott posted a 73 in the first and a 75 in the second round for a +8 (148), 57th.  Austin Fox turned in a 75 in each round to sit at 70th at +10 (150), while Daniel Peña finished the first 18 in 72 strokes, but his second round 82 put him in 90th at +14 (154).

Pacific tallied 30 birdies through two rounds, with only five teams posting more. Unsurprisingly, Colorado State leads the field on their home course, shooting -12. Second place Missouri-Kansas City is +2. The Tigers are six strokes out of eighth and 12 shots back of 5th.

Action for the Tigers gets going at 7 a.m. Pacific Tuesday morning with the third and final round.
