Johnson City, Tenn. –

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. — The No. 24 Kansas men’s golf team is in 14th place, in a 15-team field, after two rounds of the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at The Ridges in Johnson City, Tenn. Kansas opened the two-day tournament with a first round total of 301, then followed with a second round score of 290 for a two-round total of 591 at The Ridges Golf and Country Club.

“We had a very tough morning round,” head coach Ross Randall said. “We were able to put together a much better afternoon round, so we still have a chance to move up.”

Senior Kevin Ward (Leawood, Kan.) leads the Jayhawks after he shot a 142 two-round total to place in a tie for seventh. Senior Andrew Price (Lake Forest, Ill.) is tied for 40th after carding two rounds of 74 for a two-round total of 148. Sophomore Gary Woodland (Berryton, Kan.) is tied for 51st after he shot rounds of 78 and 72 for a two-round total of 150. Sophomore Tyler Docking (Olathe, Kan.) is tied for 54th place after he carded a score of 78 in the first round, followed by a 73 in the second, for a two-round 151 total. Sophomore Barrett Martens (Platte City, Mo.) is in 78th place after carding an 82 in the first round and a 76 in the second for a 158 two-round total.
