by Gary Baines - 9/10/2017


Colorado-based men's teams earned two of the top three spots in the season-opening Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational on Sunday, but not the big one.

The University of Wyoming, with two players in the top three individually, landed the team title at Eisenhower Golf Club at the Air Force Academy as 2015 champion Colorado State finished second and the University of Colorado third for the second straight year.

Wyoming ended up with a three-day total of 29-under-par 835, while CSU checked in at 840 and CU at 843.

Northern Colorado ended up seventh out of 19 teams at 863 and host Air Force in ninth at 870.

John Murdock, a product of Laramie High School in Wyoming, ran away with the individual title, winning by five. He went 67-65-70 for a 14-under-par 202 total.

Eight Coloradans or players from Colorado-based schools finished in the top 10, with German Amateur champion Max Oelfke of CSU placing second at 207. Yannik Paul of CU was third (208) and Buff teammate Daniel O'Loughlin fifth (209). Andrew Romano of UNC ended up seventh at 210, along with Coloradan Kyler Dunkle of Utah and Colton Yates of CSU, and Coby Welch of UNC and AJ Ott of CSU were 10th at 211.
