Saturday, March 19, 2016

— Kansas University’s Chase Hanna and Connor Peck were at 7-under 137 through two rounds, and KU’s men’s golf team held second place among 20 teams Friday in the Desert Intercollegiate.

Hannah shot rounds of 67 and 70, and Peck carded 68 and 69 to tie for fifth place entering today’s final round.

Other two-round KU scores: Daniel Hudson (141, tied for 21st), Ben Welle (142, tied for 28th), Charlie Hillier (143, tied for 37th), and Brock Drogosch (147, tied for 70th).

Iowa State led the team standings with a 25-under 551 total, followed by Kansas (555) and UMKC (558).

“We played well today but just didn’t make enough birdies,” KU coach Jamie Bermel said. “I was really proud of Daniel Hudson in the second round. His 67 was a very good score in the afternoon.”
