HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – For the third time this season, the Kansas women’s golf team placed in the top-three as the Jayhawks finished second at the Ron Moore Women’s Intercollegiate at the Highlands Ranch Golf Course Sunday.
The Jayhawks were able to get strong rounds from junior Yupaporn Kawinpakorn and sophomore Pornvipa Sakdee as they finished their final rounds with an even-par 72. Kawinpakorn placed second overall in the 75-golfer field with a three-round score of 215 (-1), two strokes behind tourney winner Olivia Eliasson from Kansas State. This marks Kawinpakorn’s seventh career top-five finish as a Jayhawk.
Sakdee also had a strong tournament placing third with an overall score of 217 (+1). The Ron Moore result is Sakdee’s third career top-five finish and her second this season.
KU senior Minami Levonowich also placed in the top-10 with a score of 75 (+3) on Sunday. She finished 10th for the tournament with an overall score of 223 (+7), her third career top-10 finish as a Jayhawk.
KU seniors Gabriella DiMarco and Michelle Woods both shot 80 (+8) in their third round.  DiMarco finished with a score of 230 (+14) placing tied for 26th and Woods concluded her tournament with a 231 (+5), which tied for 34th. Freshman Pitsinee Winyarat, who played as an individual, carded a 79 (+7) Sunday as she placed tied for 54th  with a 238 (+22).
Even though the Jayhawks finished second overall in the 12-team field, KU head coach Erin O’Neil thought they could have ended the tournament with a better result.
“We gave away too many shots with doubles and triples (bogeys) today and have to learn how to keep it at bogey at worse in order to win.” O’Neil said. “Mook (Kawinpakorn), Faii (Sakdee) and Minami (Levonowich) all had a great tournament finishing in the top 10.”
After shooting a 299 (+11) Sunday, the Jayhawks finished with a three-round 884 (+20), seven strokes behind winner Kansas State who finished with an overall score 877 (+13). Long Beach State was third, four strokes behind Kansas with a score of 888 (+24).
The Jayhawks have placed in the top-five every tournament they have played in 2014-15 season. They will look to continue their strong season at the Palmetto Intercollegiate in Kiawah Island, South Carolina, Oct. 26-28.
