Jayhawks Place Eighth At Big 12 Championship

April 25, 2006

TULSA, Okla. –

The University of Kansas men’s golf team finished in eighth place, while junior Gary Woodland tied for seventh at the Big 12 Men’s Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa. Kansas finished up the second round this morning with a 296 and carded a 306 in the final round for an 897 total.

The team was battling more than the course this week as the coaches and four of the five players (excluding Gary Woodland) were battling food poisoning, which began after a team meal on Sunday evening.

Oklahoma took home the league title with an 858, followed by Texas with an 862.

“The course played difficult today with the temperature and wind,” head coach Ross Randall said. “I was very pleased with our team’s grit and determination considering their health and physical state. Gary struggled a little today, but had a very solid overall tournament.”

Woodland, who was named to the All-Tournament Team, led the Jayhawks as he tied for seventh with a 215 after a 75 in the final round. Senior Pete Krsnich tied for 32nd after carding a 77 in the final round for a 225. Junior Tyler Docking placed in a tie for 45th after a final round of 76 gave him a 229 total. Senior Luke Trammell tied for 52nd after posting a 232 total with his 78 in the final round. Freshman Zach Pederson totaled a 234 total and placed 57th after an 80 in the third round.

The Jayhawks will now await word on whether it has qualified for an NCAA Regional bid. The tournament begins on May 18-20.
