Kawinpakorn wins second straight tournament


— Kansas University senior golfer Yupaporn Kawinpakorn fired a round of 4-under, 68 at the Chip-N-Club Invitational, Tuesday, to clinch her second straight tournament victory.

Kawinpakorn edged runner-up Isabella Dilisio of Notre Dame by two strokes, and helped the Jayhawks to a third-place finish.

“Winning back to back is awesome to me, but I still left so many shots out there and I think there are still many areas that I can improve. My main goal is to shooting under par every round and I believe the rest will take care of itself,” Kawinpakorn said following her second-straight tournament title as she won the Schooner Classic Sept. 21 in Norman, Oklahoma.

Freshman Ariadna Fonseca Diaz also cracked the top 10, as she tied for sixth place.

Notre Dame coasted to the team title by 30 strokes over South Dakota State.

Congratulations! Keep grinding AND enjoying the game. I will gladly speak for all KU fans and friends - super proud of what you're doing this year.

Congratulations, again! Paraphrasing your sensible approach, your main goal is to shoot under par every round, then just let the 'chips fall where they may.'
