Men's Golf Sets Records In Hawaii

Feb. 14, 2005


The University of Kansas men’s golf team returned from the Taylor Made/Waikoloa Intercollegiate Golf Tournament in Hilo, Hawaii after three days that featured a handful of record setting performances.

The Jayhawks 31 under par (833) performance for the three day event was the lowest ever by a KU squad in relation to par. Thier first round of 16 under par (272) was the lowest round in realation to par by a Kansas team and senior Andrew Price’s 63 in the final round tied the KU record set by Ryan Vermeer for the lowest score by an individual. His nine under performance on the day was the lowest in relation to par in the history of KU golf.

“It was an easy golf course,” head coach Ross Randall said. “You still have to make putts and hit shots, though. We beat a lot of ranked teams and performed very well. I am very pleased with our performance.”

The Jayhawks will next be in action at the UTSA Invitational on Feb. 28-March 1 in San Antonio, Texas.
