Jayhawks sit in tenth place entering final round at the William H. Tucker Intercollegiate

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – After to back-to-back rounds Friday, the Kansas men’s golf team made a push in the second round and sits in 10th place on the team leaderboard heading into the final round at the William H. Tucker Intercollegiate at UNM Championship Course.

After a tough first round, the Jayhawks shot 1-under par 287 in the second round. Overall the Jayhawks shot an 8-over par 584.

"“I think we got a better feel for the elevation and adjusted to the distances better. We still need to execute better on par five holes and need all five guys to compete for an entire 18 holes.”"

Head Coach Jamie Bermel

Leading the way for KU were redshirt sophomore Jeff Doty and senior Andy Spencer. Both shot 1-over par 145 on the day and are tied for 26th place on the individual leaderboard. Doty knocked in an eagle on hole one and Spencer put together three-straight birdies to help their scores.

"“We had a very good round going this afternoon and then kind of stumbled home.""

Head Coach Jamie Bermel

The final round of the tournament is set for Saturday, Sept. 27, at 8:45 a.m. (Central). Live scoring can be followed at Golfstat.com.
