PARK CITY, Utah - For the second-straight tournament, Boise State junior men's golfer Ty Travis will enter the final round atop the leaderboard. Travis posted back-to-back sub-par rounds Monday, and is tied for first place at the Utah Invitational.

Travis opened with a 2-under 69 at the 7,130-yard Jeremy Golf and Country Club, and following with a 3-under 68. He is tied with two other individuals for first place.

Travis owned sole possession of first place after the first two rounds of the Dash Thomas Memorial Sept. 23, and finished tied for fifth.

He is joined by three Broncos in the top 25, including freshman Kyle Mitsunaga. In just his second collegiate tournament, Mitsunaga is tied for 16th with a two-round total of 143 (73-70, +1).

Sophomore Logan France and redshirt senior Jordan Skyles each posted sub-par rounds in their second 18, moving into the top 25. France posted rounds of 75-69, and Skyles shot 74-70. Each is tied for 21st at 144 (+2).

Boise State is tied with tournament-host Utah for fourth place, each school posting team scores of 720 (+10). The Broncos are only four strokes back of tournament-leader Utah State (716, +6), and one stroke back of a tie for second place.

Collegiate tournaments normally play five individuals and count four scores, but at the Utah Invitational schools are playing six and counting five. Were the teams playing the typical format, Boise State's top four scores in the second round would have totaled 277 (-7), six strokes shy of the school record.

Freshman David Elliott (73-79--152, +10) and junior Jon VanDyk (80-81--161, +19) rounded out the scoring for the Broncos.

Tuesday's final round is scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at 10 a.m., and live scoring is available at Golfstat.com.
