Lahaina, Hawaii Behind junior Ben Welle, the Kansas men’s golf team fell to two spots to fifth after day two at the Ka’anapali Collegiate Classic at the Ka’anapali Golf Course in Lahaina, Hawaii, Saturday.

The Jayhawks are 26 strokes behind the leader and second-ranked Oregon 545 (-23). Following Oregon is 48th-ranked Georgia at 566 (-2). No. 27 Clemson and No. 32 North Florida are tied for third at 569 (+1). Kansas sits fifth at 571 (+3) in the 13-team field.

“There were tough conditions today, tough for everyone,” Kansas head coach Jamie Bermel said. “We started out poorly and steadied things a bit coming in. We are five strokes out of second place.”

Kansas was led by Welle who shot 73 (+2) Saturday and has a two-round 141 (-1) which is tied for 10th in the 73-golfer field. Following Welle is senior Logan Philley who shot a 74 (+3) Saturday and has a two-round 144 (+2). He is tied for 24th with redshirt freshman Brock Drogosch who shot a 78 (+7) in his second round.

One shot behind Philley and Drogosch is KU sophomore Chase Hanna who carded a 79 (+9) Saturday, has a two-round 145 (+3) and is tied for 28th. Freshman Gary Daoust is tied for 44th shooting a 72-76—148 (+6). KU junior Connor Peck, who is playing as an individual, is tied for 16th after shooting a 71-71—142 (E).

“We need to play well on Sunday and see if we can move up the leaderboard,” Bermel said.
