Kansas senior Chase Hanna has been named Co-Big 12 Golfer of the Month, Kansas Athletics announced Wednesday.
Wednesday morning, the Big 12 Conference announced that Hanna would represent the Jayhawks, sharing the November honor with fellow Big 12 competitor, Blaine Hale, a sophomore from Oklahoma. Hanna made his case by posting a career low, 61, in the second round of the Ka’anapali Collegiate Classic on November 5, setting a new school standard and only one off of tying the NCAA low.
Hanna’s nine birdies and one eagle in a single round put him in a position to finish the tournament tied for sixth place, no easy feat as the field consisted of four top-25 ranked teams. This marks the fourth top-10 finish of the season and tenth of his career.
