Utah State’s Reed Platke is currently tied for 15th place with a 1-over 143 after the first two rounds of the Boise State hosted Dash Thomas Memorial held Monday at the The Club at SpurWing.

Utah State currently sits in fifth place in the 13-team field with a 13-over 581 (297-284). Washington State has a two-shot lead after the first two rounds with a 7-under 561 (286-275), while Utah Valley’s Mason Casper sits atop the leader board after rounds of 66 and 69 for a 7-under 135.

Platke, a freshman from Whitefish, Mont., began the tournament with a 3-over 74 and then carded a season-best 2-under 69 during his second 18 holes to sit tied for 15th with a 1-over 143. Fellow freshman Seokwon Jeon (Salt Lake City, Utah) is tied for 23rd with a 3-over 145 after rounds of 78 and 67, as that 4-under 67 is the lowest round by an Aggie golfer this year. Junior Tanner Higham (Shelley, Idaho) is tied for 44th with a 7-over 149 (70-79), senior Brendan Dennis (Roosevelt, Utah) is tied for 54th with an 8-over 150 (75-75) and fellow senior Kris Sayer (Idaho Falls, Idaho) is in 56th-place with a 9-over 151 (78-73).

Teams will tee off on Tuesday, September 25, in the final round of the Dash Thomas Memorial beginning at 9 a.m.
