San Antonio Kansas University’s Yupaporn Kawinpakorn and Pornvipa Sakdee shot even-par 72 and were tied for eighth place after the first day of the Big 12 Women’s Golf Championship on Friday at Dominion Country Club.
As a team, the Jayhawks were in seventh place at 297, 10 strokes behind leader Iowa State.
“We gave most of our shots away today on the greens. They are rolling slowly, and we can do a better job with playing less break and hitting putts firmer,” KU coach Erin O’Neil said. “We also made adjustments to a couple of tee shots for tomorrow to help put us in better position to hit the green in regulation on some of the narrower holes.”
Kansas State’s Madison Talley is leading at 69.
Other KU scores: Ariadna Fonseca Diaz, tied for 33rd, 76; Pitsinee Winyarat, tied for 37th, 77; and Victoria Chandra, 43rd, 78.
The tournament resumes today.
