KU men’s golf places ninth in Indiana


— Kansas University freshman Chase Hanna carded his second straight 74 on Tuesday in the final round of the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate. Hanna finished tied for 17th place as the Jayhawks placed ninth in the 14-team, three-day tournament.

“We started out pretty well on the first couple of holes,” KU coach Jamie Bermel said. “Then there was a spot where there were a bunch of bees and players were getting stung. It was kind of an odd scenario. Once again there were a couple bad swings with a couple bad decisions and we are 15 over par. But then we came back on the second nine. They responded and played pretty well.”

Kansas sophomores Ben Welle and Jackson Foth, and senior Ryley Haas all carded third-round 75s. Welle and Foth shot a three-round 233, placing them both in a tie for 48th. Haas’ 75 put him at 236 and a tie for 58th. Junior Logan Philley posted a final-round 79, bringing his score to 236 and placing him in a tie for 58th. Hanna led the way with a 7-over 223.
