Kansas Men's Golf Finishes 12th at The Ridges

Sept. 12, 2004

Johnson City, Tenn. –

The No. 24 Kansas men’s golf team took 12th place, in a 15-team field, at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at The Ridges in Johnson City, Tenn. Kansas began the day in 14th after a two day total of 591 but was able to move up after a final round of 293 at The Ridges Golf and Country Club.

“We played a little bit better today,” head coach Ross Randall said. “The golf course played tougher and we had some chances to move up but we just missed our opportunities.”

Tennessee took the tournament title after shooting a final round 280 to finish at 10-under. Fellow Big 12 member Oklahoma shot a final round of 298 and dropped from first to fourth.

Senior Kevin Ward (Leawood, Kan.) shot a final round 74 to card a 216 for a tie for 10th. Sophomore Tyler Docking (Olathe, Kan.) moved up 21 spots after carding a 70 for a three-round total of 221 and a tie for 33rd. Senior Andrew Price (Lake Forest, Ill.) tied for 35th after shooting his third straight round of 74 for a 222 total. Sophomore Gary Woodland (Berryton, Kan.) shot a final round 76 to finish in a tie for 59th. Sophomore Barrett Martens (Platte City, Mo.) finished in a tie for 75th after a final round of 75 to card a three-round total of 233.

“We will be alright,” Randall said. “We have a lot of room for improvement and we look forward to having a better showing at home next week.”

The Jayhawks will next host the Kansas Invitational on Monday, Sept. 20 at Alvamar Country Club in Lawrence, Kan.
