The Kansas men’s golf team stands at the top of the leaderboard after the first day of play at the All-American in Houston, Texas. The Jayhawks shot an opening-round 294, then followed with an even-par score of 288 in the second round.

Senior Gary Woodland is leading the individual portion of the tournament with a four-under score of 140 after two rounds of play. The Topeka, Kan., native has amassed 10 birdies through day one. Woodland is joined by fellow senior Tyler Docking in the top-five. Docking shot an opening-round 71, followed by a 72 for a two-round total of 143, good for fourth place.

“We are pleased right now as a lot of guys made some birdies to finish the day,” said head coach Ross Randall. “The golf course played harder in the morning and as a result the scores were higher during the first round. We shot even-par in the second round and that is a good score. I feel like we are in good shape heading into the final round.”

Freshman Patrick Roth shot a two-under par score of 70 after shooting a 79 in round one to finish the day in a tie for 24th place. Junior Joey Mundy shot a two-round total of 143 in his season debut and is tied for 43rd. Sophomore Walt Koelbel carded consecutive rounds of 78 to stand in a tie for 54th. Freshman David Cosel, who is competing as an individual during the tournament, stands in a tie for 62nd after a two-round total of 162.

Houston, the host school of the event, and Middle Tennessee State are tied for second place, two strokes behind the Jayhawks with a two-round score of 586. Lamar and Southeastern Louisiana are tied for fourth place with 587 strokes. Big 12 schools Iowa State and Colorado stand in 7th and 10th respectively, with scores of 593 and 602.
