Hanna, Kansas first in Golfweek

— Kansas senior Chase Hanna shot a 5-under 67 and tied for first place in the Golfweek Conference Challenge, and the Jayhawks won the team title Sunday at Spirit Hollow Golf Course.

Hanna birdied the 17th and 18th holes to earn the tie for first with Texas A&M;’s Chandler Phillips.

“We played well (Sunday),” KU coach Jamie Bermel said. “Chase Hanna played like a senior and had a great finish.

KU’s Dan Sutton shot a final-round 72 and finished fourth at 6-under.

Other KU scores: Daniel Hudson (1-over, tied for 12th), Charlie Hillier (2-over, tied for 18th) and Alex Moorman (7-over, tied for 34th).

KU won the 12-team tournament with a team score of 18-under, 13 strokes better than second-place Texas A&M.;

“Winning is contagious and it is our hope we will have a chance every time we play,” Bermel said. “We need to keep getting better every week. On the golf course and in the weight room. If we continue to do that, good things will happen.”
