<?xml:namespace prefix=”st1″ ns=”urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags”?>Woodland managed to shot a 75 despite earning a triple-bogey on the second hole because of five birdies during the day. Docking had better luck on the second hole, eagling it and he also added two birdies during his round. Woodland is tied for 32nd and Docking is tied for 35th entering the last round of play tomorrow.
“This wasn’t the day that we would have liked,” said head coach Ross Randall. “The course played a lot easier today and we were only able to improve on our score by two strokes. Gary and Tyler’s scores of 75 weren’t bad, but we are really going to have to play well tomorrow.”
Junior Joey Mundy shot a second-round score of 80 and is tied for 90th place. Senior Barrett Martens shot his second straight 82 and is tied for 122nd after the second day of play. Walt Koelbel carded an 81, improving on his first-round score by 11 strokes, and is tied for 134th place.
The Jayhawks must finish in the top-10 in order to qualify for the NCAA Championship. They trail number 10 ranked Texas A&M by 17 shots entering the final round of play.
