Alex Moorman redshirted last season at Kansas and didn’t qualify for the Jayhawk travel squad in the season-opening event. But, when his number was called to play as an individual at the 2016 Maui Jim Intercollegiate at the Mirabel Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, he made the most of it. In his first collegiate event, Moorman fired a 3-under 68 in his opening round and then in the third round collected his first career hole-in-one. The eagle on the 183-yard par 3 helped Moorman finish the event at even par, which was good to tie for 28th overall.
