Jayhawks wrap up Minnesota Invitational

WOODBURY, Minn. – The Kansas women’s golf team finished its second and final round of the Minnesota Invitational on Tuesday afternoon after weather conditions shortened the three-round tournament.

Junior Yi-Tsen Chou led the Jayhawks with a top-20 finish ending the 36-hole tournament in 17th. Chou knocked in five birdies and finished with a score of 146 (+2) during the tournament.

The Jayhawks struggled with their putting and consistency, ultimately finishing in 15th place.

"Today was tough but not because of the weather. Tee to green we did fine; it really came down to short game especially putting. Our speed on was off and we had far too many three putts. I wish I could blame it on the weather delays and course conditions but I can’t. We just didn’t get the ball in the hole like we should."

Erin O'Neil, Head Coach

Kansas looks to rebound as it prepares to face in-state rival Kansas State at the Sunflower Invitational on Sunday, September 15.

“We will spend the majority of our time working to improve our lag putt speeds and getting more confidence on short putts before Kansas State,” O’Neil said.
