KU men’s golf finishes second at Madison


— Freshman Chase Hanna tied for fifth place and sophomore Jackson Foth tied for 10th to lead Kansas University’s men’s golf team to a runner-up finish on Tuesday at the Badger Invitational.

Hanna carded a 71-73-72—216 (even-par) and Foth a 73-72-75—220 (+4) as KU finished 24 strokes back of champion South Carolina.

"It's great to have a freshman play well, especially as early as his fourth, fifth and sixth collegiate rounds," Kansas coach Jamie Bermel said. "And I'm happy for Jackson. He got in the lineup a little bit last year and now he's really starting to feel a little more comfortable out there. He hits the ball pretty high and it was windy the past couple days, but he managed to stay in there."

We are quick to criticize when things have not gone well with men's and women's golf but need to give Zenger and these programs a shout out...MUCH improved great job to these two coaches. And to have 2 young local kids leading the men is great normally you would read about them at WSU KSu or OSU

A 2nd place finish sounds pretty good. Congrats guys. Heck of a job by Hanna and Foth. South Carolina must be really good... a 24 stroke victory.

It would be nice if these updates included a link to the tourney standings so we could see who all was in the field and the rest of the scores.

Coach Bermel is a solid hire and every Jayhawk should love the direction of the Golf Team.

Rock Chalk.

J, M, and J! Please.LJW. Just a little bit of basic reporting...did they finish 2nd in a 4 team tournament? a 30 team tournament? (Turns out it was 14 teams.)
