Men’s Golf completes opening round of the Badger Invitational
MADISON, Wis. – The Kansas men’s golf team finished its first round of the Badger Invitational Sunday at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison, Wisconsin, and sit in second place on the team leaderboard.
Paving the way for the Jayhawks were junior Ben Sigel and freshman Luke Kluver. Sigel shot 3-under par 69 and sits in a five-way tie for first place on the leaderboard. Kluver carded 2-under par 70 and is tied for sixth.
"Ben had a good start and freshman Luke Kluver was solid as well."Head Coach Jamie Bermel
Notre Dame shot 5-under par 283 and sits atop the leaderboard. KU shot 2-under par 286 and trails the Fighting Irish by three strokes heading into Monday’s second round.
"We got off to a nice start on day one. Overall, we had typical early-season mistakes with a few careless three-putts and a few mental mistakes. I think if we tighten those things up a bit we can improve day-to-day."Head Coach Jamie Bermel
