Mitsunaga Top Bronco at Bandon Dunes
March 8, 2016

BANDON, Ore. – Junior Kyle Mitsunaga led the Boise State men’s golf team at the Bandon Dunes Championship, concluding the three-day, three-round event in a tie for 32nd, Tuesday. Mitsunaga posted rounds of 77-72-77 (226, +13) at the par-71, 6,682-yard Bandon Trails Course at the Bandon Dunes Resort.

Boise State posted a second-round 295 (+11) between first- and third-round scores of 302 (+18), finishing in eighth place at 899 (+47). The Broncos finished five strokes clear of Washington State, which finished ninth, and 39 strokes in front of the only other Mountain West school in the field, San Jose State.

“We handled some tough conditions okay this week,” head coach Dan Potter said. “It could have been better, but I think we can learn from this experience. Nobody played great, but everyone had some good moments that kept us in the game.”

Freshman Connor Bell (73-79-75—227, +14) and senior Logan France (77-76-74—227, +14) each finished a stroke behind Mitsunaga, while sophomore Tristan Rohrbaugh finished three back of his junior teammate (75-74-80—229, +16).

Sophomore Jacob Byers rounded out the scoring, shooting 233 (84-73-76, +20).

Ninth-ranked Clemson won the tournament, shooting 2-over (854) as a team. Utah Valley’s Blair Bursey took home medalist honors, carding a 5-under 208 (71-68-69).

The Broncos are scheduled to continue the spring portion of their season March 18-19, at the Desert Shootout in Goodyear, Ariz.
