    PALM DESERT, Calif. — The University of Colorado men's golf team begins play Friday in the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate, and the Buffs are looking for a good performance to crack the nation's top 20 for the first time in the spring in 17 years.

    The Buffaloes enter this event ranked No. 21 by Golfweek and No. 24 by both GolfStat and the Golf Coaches Association of America's Coaches' Poll, CU's first regular season appearance in the latter in over 25 years.

    Colorado is 73-14-2 against Division I competition this season, including a 7-8 record against top 25 teams, the 14th-best mark in the nation. The Buffs have finished in the top five in all seven tournaments and are gunning for a record-tying eighth this weekend in trying to match CU's 1992-93 and 2013-14 squads. CU has also recorded a school-best seven straight rounds under par.

    The field for the tournament is stronger than it has been in recent years, with four top 35 and eight top 100 schools competing, including No. 5 Texas Tech, No. 10 Oregon and No. 32 Kansas along with the No. 21 Buffaloes. CU and Oregon are two of just three "northern" or "cold weather" schools in this week's top 25, joined only by No. 3 Illinois.
    ...

    Play begins with an 8:00 a.m. MST shotgun; the Buffs are paired with TCU (No. 66), Gonzaga and Texas-Arlington in Friday's first round. Colorado arrived here last Saturday and has had a full week of practice in the Arizona sun.

    Article after the 1st round - http://www.cubuffs.com/news/2017/2/...third-in-wyomings-desert-intercollegiate.aspx

    PALM DESERT, Calif. — The University of Colorado men's golf team stands in third place after the first round of the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate, as the Buffaloes are gunning for their first win in the event they have finished as the runner-up twice.

    Colorado, ranked 21st by Golfweek and 24th by both the Golf Coaches Association of America and GolfStat, turned in a 3-over par score of 291, trailing No. 10 Oregon by nine shots, as the Ducks recorded the only under par team score of the day at 6-under 282. No. 58 TCU is second at 1-over 289, followed by CU, with No. 5 Texas Tech (292) and No. 32 Kansas (293) rounding out the top five.

    The Buffs were under par for most of the round, with their five designated scorers 4-under at the turn, with a collective seven birdies and just three bogeys. But the quintet would play the last seven holes at a combined 10-over, with just two birdies, six bogeys, a double bogey and a quadruple bogey. It ended a school-record run of seven straight rounds under par by the Buffs as a team.

    I was occasionally checking out the leader board as the round (and lacrosse game) was going on, and the Buffs were up by 4-5 strokes one minute, then down one in seemingly a second. Looked at the detail, and it was a dreaded "turkey"*** by one of the players, with a few more strokes lost after that. Oregon also surged late to go from ~even par to -6.
    (***Have to confess I had no idea what a quadruple bogey is called (I used to call it "my par" decades ago when I frustratingly tried to play the game), but per http://www.leaderboard.com/GLOSSARY_QUADRUPLEBOGEY , a turkey it is.)

    Golfers Shoot NCAA Season-Best Round, Now Second In Wyoming Meet

    Jeremy Paul's 64 leads four Buffs in the 60s

    PALM DESERT, Calif. — The University of Colorado men's golf team didn't finish the first round the way it would have liked on Friday, so the Buffaloes took it out on the course and 21 other teams here Saturday in the second round of the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate.

    Colorado turned in a 22-under par 266 second round score, the best in the nation this season in relation to par as well as shattering the school record by five strokes. CU, ranked 21st by Golfweek and 24th by both the Golf Coaches Association of America and GolfStat, used the effort to post a 19-under score of 557 through two rounds and move into second place behind No. 10 Oregon.
