WEST POINT, Miss. – The Kansas Men’s Golf team is currently in sixth as day one of the Old Waverly Collegiate Championship ended in a suspension of play due to lightning and darkness. The play of the second round will continue at 8:30 a.m. CT, April 7.
Ole Miss is leading the event at 7-under par, three strokes ahead of UAB at 4-under.  Florida and South Alabama are tied for third at -3 followed by Mississippi State (-2) then Kansas at +4.
“We played solid the first round with a great finish,” Kansas head coach Jamie Bermel said. “We need to finish the last six holes well and have a good day on Tuesday.”
KU sophomore Chase Hanna and freshman Daniel Hudson led the Jayhawks as they are in the top-20 of the 84-golfer field. Hanna has carded one eagle and four birdies through 28 holes with eight to play as he sits tied for 11th. Hudson has carded six birdies through 31 holes with five to play as he sits tied for 17th.
“Daniel Hudson and Chase Hanna had pretty solid first rounds,” Bermel said. “Brock Drogosch was six over through seven holes and fought his way back to two over and helped the team score.”
Kansas juniors Connor Peck and Ben Welle are tied for 44th at the suspension of play. Peck carded one birdie and Welle carded carded three as the two juniors are four-over par with six holes left to play in the second round tomorrow.
