LAHAINA, Haw. — The first round of the fifth annual Ka’anpali Collegiate Classic concludes with the Kansas men’s golf team tied for 18th place with Air Force out of the 20-team field. Kansas struggled to find its groove on the back nine as KU finished a combined 9-over par, compared to their combined 5-under par front nine finish.
Senior Jake Scarrow highlighted the day with his career low 5-under 66 on the par-71 Ka’anpali Golf Course. Scarrow, who is playing as an individual in the event, led the team with seven birdies and heads into round two tied for eighth place in the 116-player field. Harry Hillier got his first look at the Ka’anapali Course and finished his day at even-par.
Sophomores Ben Sigel and Drew Shepherd both finished the front nine 3-under par. Shepherd would conclude round one 1-over and Sigel sits at 2-over going into day two. Senior Charlier Hillier and junior Andy Spencer would duplicate each other’s scores with a 3-over par finish on the front nine and an even par finish on the back nine.
Ninth ranked Clemson finished round one atop the leaderboard shooting a solid 22-under par, followed by California at 18-under and Georgia at 16-under. The Jayhawks are set to tee off in a shotgun start Saturday at 1:30 p.m. (Central). Follow live scorecard updates throughout the day here.
Head Coach Jamie Bermel
On Jake Scarrow’s performance…
“Jake played well today. It was good to see him have a very good round.”
On the teams overall performance…
“As for the other guys – we weren’t very sharp and as the head coach that falls on me. We looked sluggish all day and simply played poorly. Now, the key is to figure out how to turn it around and finish strong.”
On what the team needs to do better…
“We need to drive the ball better and make key putts. Way too many carless errors. We played a little better the last few holes, but we dug ourselves a deep hole with the score today.”

  • Jake Scarrow posted a career low finish of 5-under 66.
  • Ben Sigel carded two eagles in his opening round.
  • As a team, Kansas collectively finished 5-under par on the front nine.
