FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Behind a runner-up finish by sophomore Chase Hanna, the Kansas men’s golf team finished second at the Ram Masters Invitational at the Fort Collins Country Club Tuesday. The Jayhawks shot 3-over 283 in their final round.
KU ended the tournament with a three-round 859 (+19) and was led by Hanna, who tied for second in the 84-golfer field.
“The guys played well today, we just couldn’t catch Colorado State. I am proud of how we competed,” KU head coach Jamie Bermel said. “Chase Hanna had a very good event.”
Hanna, a sophomore from Leawood, Kansas, led KU Tuesday carding five birdies shooting a KU career-low 68 (-2). He ended with a 75-68-68—211 (+1) and his second-place gives him two top-5 finishes in his short KU career.
Junior Connor Peck had a final round 70 (E) and finished tied for 13th with a 73-74-70—217 (+7). Freshman Spencer Painton played as an individual shooting a final round 73 (+3) to tie for 24th with 71-75-73—219 (+9). Redshirt senior Bryce Brown shot a final round 71 (+1) finishing tied for 30th. He ended 73-77-71—221 (+11). Freshman Daniel Hudson had a third-round 74 (+4) with a tournament 75-74-74—223 (+13), tying for 42nd.
KU junior Ben Welle’s third-round 77 (+5) was declared disqualified when he and Bermel found a scoring error and turned it into tournament officials after Welle’s scorecard had been signed. Welle originally signed for a 76, which would have been KU’s fifth-highest score Tuesday and would not have counted toward the team total. Welle would have finished tied for 12th individually had his 77 held up, yet he ended placing 84th due to the disqualification.
Playing on its home course, Colorado State won the tournament with a final round 285 (+5) and a three-round 283-287-285—855 (+15), four strokes ahead of KU. Wyoming’s Drew McCullough won the individual title shooting a 2-over Tuesday with a three-round 68-70-72—210 (E), one-shot ahead of Hanna’s 211 (+1). Nevada’s Corey Eddings tied Hanna for second place.
“I think we will learn from this and do better next time,” said Bermel.
Next up, the Jayhawks will travel to Madison Wisconsin to play in the Badger Invitational on September 28-30, where they finished second last season.
