Mark Bostick Golf Course proves troublesome for the Jayhawks
Suntrust Gator Women’s Invitational
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Kansas women’s golf team’s struggles continued during the final round of the Suntrust Gator Women’s Invitational as it posted a 31-over 311 to finish in 13th place. The Jayhawks were 79-over after three rounds in an event that didn’t feature any under-par scoring.
The lone bright spot for the Jayhawks in the third round was Pitsinee Winyarat. She fired three birdies and was even-par on the front nine. Winyarat shot a 4-over 74 on the day, cracking the top-30 by finishing in a tie for 30th. Her 30th-place finish ties her best finish in an event this season.
The next best KU finisher was sophomore Ariadna Fonseca Diaz, who had a top-5 finish in the Westbrook Spring Invitational two weeks ago, but could not duplicate similar success, finishing in a tie for 50th, after shooting an 8-over 78 in her final round.
Freshman Yi-Tsen Chou finished the tournament in 61st at 22-over, following her 9-over 79 third round.
Sophomore Chomchana Phuchanbanchob, who, like Diaz, had success at the Westbrook Spring Invitational with a 10th-place finish, also struggled this weekend, shooting a 10-over 80 to end the event tied for 62nd. She ended her weekend 23-over.
Individual competitor Xinyun Yu shot an 8-over 78 to finish 30-over for the tournament, landing her in a tie for 73rd.
Victoria Chandra shot 16-over after she recorded two triple bogies and a double bogey. She shot an 86 on the day, and was 34-over for the weekend.
Florida, the host of the tournament, won the Suntrust Gator Women’s Invitational after shooting a collective 7-over par 847. Duke (+15), UCF (+15), Campbell (+42) and Clemson (+44) round out the top-5 team finishers.
Kansas will look to regain some momentum when it travels to South Carolina March 20-21 to compete in the Briar’s Creek Invitational.
