FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The South Dakota men’s golf team is in a tie for 13th place after two rounds of the Colorado State Ram Masters Invitational on Monday at the Fort Collins Country Club.
The Coyotes tallied scores of 293 and 294 for a 36-hole score of 587 of the 54-hole tournament. Host Colorado State is the runaway leader with a 12-under-par 548, the only team to shoot under par in the field.

Junior Tommy Vining improved by three strokes from the first round to the second round where he shot a 2-over-par 72 and tied for 41st position with a 147.
