Jayhawks claim 8th at Minnesota Invitational

The University of Kansas women’s golf team survived windy conditions on the final day of the Minnesota Invitational, finishing in a tie for 8th place with a two-day score of 883.

Kansas was able to finish strong in the three-round event behind a strong showing by junior Yi-Tsen Chou, who secured herself a finish in the top 5 by carding three clutch birdies on the back nine. Chou finished with a total of six birdies on the day, while she turned in 11 birdies for the tournament, to finish in a tie for third on the individual leaderboard.

“I’m very proud of how Yi-Tsen competed this week,” head coach Erin O’Neil said in team release. “She has been working on her mental game and we could really see a difference in her attitude, how she carried herself on the course, etc. She was much more confident in herself and it showed in how she was able to execute shots under pressure.”

Kansas will travel to Greenville, S.C., for the Lady Paladin Invitational, which will take place Sept. 21-23 at the Furman University Golf Course.
