FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Boise State men’s golfers Taeksoo Kim and Logan France registered top-25 finishes in the Ram Master Invitational, Tuesday.

Kim finished one stroke back of notching his second top-10 finish in as many tournaments to start the 2012-13 season, and France posted the first top-25 effort of his career.

Kim, a senior, carded a 3-over-par 73 during the final round at the par-70, 7,121-yard Fort Collins Country Club, finishing in a tie for 11th. He finished with a three-round total of 216 (+6), six strokes back of tournament medalist Jordan Wetsch (Colorado State).

Kim finished tied for fourth at last week’s season-opening Itani Quality Homes Collegiate in Pullman, Wash.

France, a freshman playing in just his second collegiate event, finished tied for 20th. He fired a 1-under 69 in the final round – tied for the fourth-lowest score of the day – to finish at 218 (+8) for the tournament.

The duo paced the Broncos, who finished in ninth place as a team. Boise State posted a team score of 890 (+50); two strokes clear Wyoming and 15 strokes ahead of Air Force, both conference foes. Wichita State won the event with an 859 (+19).

Rounding out the Bronco contingent were senior Clayton Kosanovich (224, +14), redshirt junior Jordan Skyles (233, +23) and sophomore Jon VanDyk (236, +26).

Boise State will host the Dash Thomas Memorial next week at The Club at SpurWing. The first two rounds will be played Monday (Sept. 24), with the final round Tuesday (Sept. 25).
