Petersilie Places Sixth; Pios Eighth at Visit Stockton Pacific Invitational

Oct. 29, 2016


– The University of Denver men’s golf team wrapped up the fall portion of its 2016-17 year on Saturday, finishing eighth at the Visit Stockton Pacific Invitational. The Pioneers shot a 289 over its final 18 holes.

Par for the 6,516-yard course was 71.

Brigham Young took home the team title with a total of 18-under-par, highlighted by a final-round 9-under on the day. The Cougars finished 16 strokes ahead of the next closest teams in the 13-team field.

Isaac Petersilie closed out the fall portion of his freshman campaign in style, placing a season-best sixth with a three-round total of 208 (68-71-69), 5-under.

“The swing felt dialed in this week,” Petersilie said. “My short game felt good as well which enabled me to keep up the momentum. The course was playing soft, which allowed for lots of pin hinting and it was overall a good test. The team is looking good heading into the spring season and we continue to grow and build off each other.”

Chris Korte tied for 57th after firing a 4-over 75 on the afternoon. The junior ended with a total of 224.  

Jake Kelley turned in his second straight 71-or-better round by shooting par for the course on Saturday, putting him in a tie for 28th.

Petter Mikalsen ended his final fall tournament of his collegiate career tied for 51st with a 76 on the last day of play.



Eric Hagen posted a 74 over his final 18 holes, moving him into 74th for the tournament.

Michael Boylan and Roy Kang, both competing as individuals, each wrapped up their third round on Friday. Boylan tied for 57th and Kang 41st.

Denver returns to action in the spring of 2017.
