Kansas Placed Eighth in Final Tournament of the Fall Season
LAHAINA, Hi. – After three rounds of the final tournament of the fall season, the Kansas men’s golf team finished in eighth place at the Ka’anapali Classic on Sunday, Nov. 3.
"We need to figure out a way to eliminate the silly mistakes that cost us dearly each round We had two balls out of bounds and one in a hazard. Good teams don’t do that and we can’t afford to give away strokes like that each round."Head Coach Jamie Bermel
Freshman Luke Kluver led the Jayhawks with a career-low round of 5-under par 66 and finished tied for sixth place. Kluver carded 67-69-66 in his three rounds, marking his lowest score in a 54-hole tournament while at Kansas.
"Individually, Luke Kluver was a horse this week. He had a solid week and continues to improve each event."Head Coach Jamie Bermel
Playing as an individual, junior Drew Shepherd also shot 5-under 66 on the final day for his career-low round. Shepherd made seven birdies in the third round, five of which came on the front nine holes.
Next, the Jayhawks will prepare in the winter for the spring season and will be back in action on Feb. 23-25, at the TPC Dorado Beach Collegiate in San Juan Puerto Rico.
