Chambers Bay Plays Tough on Day One
April 4, 2016

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - The Boise State men’s golf team is in 15th place following the first two rounds of the SeattleU Redhawk Invitational, presented by OGIO and held at the Chambers Bay Golf Club, Monday.

Chambers Bay was the site of the 2015 U.S. Open.

“Brutally hard day for everyone,” head coach Dan Potter said. “It’s a grind to play a hard course in unusually hard conditions, but everyone has to play in the same stuff and we need to do a better job tomorrow.”

The Broncos posted rounds of 324-330 (654, +86) at the par-71 major championship site, and were led by sophomore Tristan Rohrbaugh, who is tied for 32nd at 16-over (78-80—158).

Juniors Kyle Mitsunaga (80-84—164, +22) and David Elliott (85-82—167, +25), freshman Connor Bell (81-84—165, +23) and senior Logan France (86-85—171, +29) rounded out the scoring on the first day.

Washington, ranked 27th nationally, leads the field at +38, and the Huskies’ Frank Garber is tied for first individually at 7-over.

The final round is scheduled to begin Tuesday with a 9 a.m. (MT) shotgun start.
