Jayhawks Head South to Compete in the All-American

Feb. 23, 2007


The Kansas men’s golf team will continue its’ spring season at the All-American at the Tradition Golf Club in Houston, Texas. The Jayhawks competed in the event last year producing their best finish of the spring season finishing fourth.

“We are looking forward to this event,” head coach Ross Randall said. “The tournament has a real nice field and the Tradition is a really good course. The weather is supposed to be warm which is a welcome change for us considering the frustrating semester we have had so far, only being able to go outside on a few occasions. We are going to need to get a lot better in a hurry and we are just going to try to do the best that we can.”

The Jayhawk lineup for this tournament has some new faces as David Cosel, Walt Koelbel and Joey Mundy will be making their spring debuts. They will be joined by the senior duo of Gary Woodland and Tyler Docking, along with Patrick Roth. One Jayhawk will compete in the tournament as an individual, but that decision has not been finalized.

The tournament will feature 36-holes of play on Feb. 26 starting at 8 a.m. The event will wrap up with 18 holes on Feb. 27. For updates on the Jayhawks progress, visit kuathletics.com.

Kansas opened the season at the Hawaii-Hilo Invitational finishing 14th. Freshman Patrick Roth was the Jayhawks top finisher in the event finishing in a tie for 43rd.
