KU women's golf finishes 6th at final fall tournament

The Kansas women’s golf team shot its lowest round of the fall season on Sunday, firing a 5-under 283 in the final round of the Ron Moore Intercollegiate at the Denver Golf Club at Highlands Ranch.

The Jayhawks finished sixth in the 15-team event.

All four cards that were counted for KU's team score on Sunday were even-par or lower, and the 5-under marked the second-lowest round of the day.

Senior Lauren Heinlein shot a 3-under 69 to lead KU on Sunday. Her three-round 213 was good for seventh place in the individual competition.

Freshman Jordan Rothman carded an even-par 72 on Sunday and tied for 16th with a 217 (+1). Senior Pear Pooratanopa finished in 28th place, with a three-round of 219 (+3) to tie for 28th. And senior Abby Glynn and super-senior Sera Tadokoro both shot 1-under 71s on Sunday and tied for 39th with three-round totals of 221 (+5).

“This team has made great strides this fall and (KU assistant coach) Katy (Nahm) and I couldn’t be prouder of how we’ve grown this fall,” first-year KU coach Lindsay Kuhle said. “We’re focused. We work hard, play with confidence, and most importantly our body language, positivity and belief in our games has improved. We have a very bright future ahead."

Kansas will open the spring season Jan. 23-24 at the Match in the Desert Superstition Mountain Golf Club in Grand Canyon, Ariz.

Not bad at all. The 6th place finish actually understates the team's performance, as they finished 11 strokes ahead of the two teams that tied for 7th, and only 2 strokes out of a tie for third.
