The Jayhawks used 579 strokes through two rounds of play and trail the leader, Purdue, by 17 strokes entering the last round of play. Kansas shot a 291 in round one and then improved on that in round two with a score of 288.

“We really had a mixed bag of scores today,” head coach Ross Randall said. “Some of the guys that had not previously played the course really struggled today. Tyler Docking shot a great round in round two and put himself in good position. We hope to play better tomorrow and hopefully move up in the standings.”

Junior Joey Mundy shot a two-round total of 144 and is currently tied for 29th place. Senior Gary Woodland carded a 149 after day one and currently sits in a tie for 52nd. Sophomore Zach Pederson, who is returning from injury, is in 83rd after shooting a 155 on day one. Sophomore Walt Koelbel is tied for 84th with a score of 156.

The tournament will conclude with the final round tomorrow. Check back to kuathletics.com for complete results.
