KU's Gilbert Drops Back At NCAA Regional
May 20, 2011
TUCSON, Ariz. – Kansas sophomore Chris Gilbert shot a four-over par 75 in the second round of the NCAA Golf Regional and dropped from 38th place to a tie for 53rd.
The current Jayhawk, who qualified for the regional as an individual, shot an opening-round 73 Thursday and has a 148 total. The tournament concludes Saturday.
Gilbert made three birdies in the second round, but followed each of those with a bogey on the next hole. A stretch with three bogeys in four holes sealed his fate Friday.
Alex Moore of Oregon State tops the field at seven-under par 135. Matt Hansen of UC Davis trails by one shot at 136, while Texas A&M’s Cameron Peck is third at 137.
San Diego State leads the team race at 556, followed by Arizona at 561, Texas A&M at 563 and Pepperdine at 564. The top five teams advance to the NCAA Championship, while the top individual not on one of those teams qualifies as well.
The tournament is taking place at the Omni Tucson National Golf Resort. It is one of six regional sites.
