Kansas golf ends 15th at tourney


— Kansas University’s men’s golf team finished 15th out of 16 teams on Saturday at the Border Olympics.

Chris Gilbert led the Jayhawks on the final day of the three-round tournament as he carded an even-par 72 with the help of four birdies. Gilbert ended the tournament tied for 37th. Teammate Alex Gutesha paced the Jayhawks and placed 34th out of 89 golfers.

KU coach Kit Grove said his team played better Saturday, though the golfers still made too many mistakes.

“Our execution was just horrible,” Grove said. “It’s just a frustrating week all the way around, but we’ll regroup and get a couple days of practice in Phoenix before the next event. It’s a completely different golf course, so hopefully we can get moving back in the right direction for the rest of the spring.”

The Jayhawks will compete next at the Desert Shootout on March 22-24 in Goodyear, Ariz.
