Palm Desert, Calif. Top-five finishes from freshman Charlie Hillier and sophomore Daniel Hudson propelled Kansas University to a golf team title at the Desert Intercollegiate on Sunday at Classic Club.
Hillier tied for third at 4-under 212, and Hudson tied for fifth a stroke back as the Jayhawks won their third team title of the season.
Kansas won with a 2-over 866, nudging runner-up Colorado by three strokes. Big 12 foes Texas Tech (870) and TCU (874) placed third and fourth.
“It was a great team victory, and the guys played with a lot of mental toughness today,” Kansas coach Jamie Bermel said. “We didn’t get off to a very good start, but they battled until the end. We beat some good teams and did it from start to finish.”
Kansas’ other finishers: Connor Peck, tied for 19th, 220; Brock Drogosch, tied for 26th, 222; Chase Hanna, tied for 45th, 225; and Ben Welle, tied for 63rd, 227.
