Trinity, Texas The Jayhawks remained in 10th place after 54 holes of competition at the Big 12 Championship Saturday at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas.
KU posted its best team score of the tournament and improved its second-round mark by 16 strokes with a 304.
“The team played better today,” said Kansas head coach Kit Grove. “The wind was down a little today, and the pins were a little bit more forgiving.”
Junior Chris Gilbert led the turnaround for KU, carding a 2-over 74 after shooting an 80 in the second round, the best round posted by any Jayhawk thus far in the Big 12 Championship.
Freshman Dylan McClure shot a 75 with five birdies, all on the front nine.
The final round starts today at 8 a.m.
