PALM DESERT, Calif. – Kansas freshman Chase Hanna led the Jayhawks on day one of the Desert Intercollegiate, as Kansas finished the round carding a 299 (+11), placing them in a tie for 19th in Palm Desert.

Hanna shot a first round one-under par as he carded a 71, placing him in a tie for 23rd. Contributing to the Jayhawks first round effort was junior Logan Philley and sophomore Ben Welle as they both shot a 75 (+3) placing them in a tie for 73rd.

“It’s a little disappointing the way we finished,” head coach Jamie Bermel said. “We were hanging right in there with about four holes to go and we just stumbled home. So hopefully we can get that corrected for tomorrow.”

Sophomore Connor Peck ended his opening day recording a six-over par 78, placing him in a tie for 106th. Finishing just behind Peck is sophomore Jackson Foth, who currently sits in a tie for 113th, after shooting a 79 (+7) in the opening round.

Junior Stan Gautier, who is playing as an individual, recorded a 76 (+4) in his first round which puts him in a tie for 91st on the individual leader board.

“It’s the first tournament of the spring and the short game is not very good,” Bermel said. “We gave away to many strokes, chipping and putting in particular. We have been out here a couple days and we need to be much more efficient around the greens.”

Colorado currently leads the pack at the Desert Intercollegiate as they recorded a first round 272 (-16). Sitting in second is Oregon who sits just four shots off the lead after recording a day one 276 (-12).

The Desert Intercollegiate will continue tomorrow, Saturday Feb. 22, with 18 holes. The event will conclude Sunday Feb. 23 with a final 18 holes.
