Heading Into the Final Day the Broncos Stand in Third

Reno, Nev.- Through two rounds of the Wolf Pack Classic, hosted by the University of Nevada, the Boise State University men’s golf team sits in sole possession of third place, after registering a 7-under par, 569. 


The team was led by senior Nick Travers’ 9-under par, 135.  He shot a 68(-4) in the first round and followed it up with a 67(-5), to take hold of second place.  He remains only three strokes back of the tournament leader.


Travers also received help from teammates Troy Merritt and Matt Hastings who each posted 144(E) for the day.  They currently are tied for 23rd place and remain just three shots out of the top 10. 


“This is the best (tournament) field we will see all year,” said head coach Kevin Burton.  “It is important that we take advantage of our opportunity to play well against Western Athletic Conference teams and currently we are ahead of them all.”


The Broncos lead WAC rivals Nevada by three strokes, Hawaii by 11, New Mexico State by 13 and Fresno State by 17. 


Shawn Tonkin also registered a very efficient score for the day, posting a 2-over, 146, to help the Broncos keep pace with leader Utah.
