Men's Golf Wins At Roadrunner

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The University of Kansas men's golf team shot a three-round 856 total to win the 17-team 2004 Roadrunner Intercollegiate on Tuesday afternoon at the 6,691 yard, par-71 Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, Texas.

"I was pleased with our play throughout most of the tournament," head coach Ross Randall said. "It was a good win for our team, especially this early in the season."

Kansas' team title was its first since winning the 2003 Kansas Invitational. It was also the first team championship for the 'Hawks during a spring season since they won the 2002 Stevinson Ranch Invitational. Second-place Baylor finished 14 strokes behind Kansas with a total of 870. Texas-San Antonio placed third with a score of 875.

Freshman Tyler Docking (Olathe, Kan.) shot a final round 69 to finish tied for third with a 212 three-round total. His third place finish is a career best. Senior Tyler Hall (Wayne, N.J.), who played in his first tournament of the spring, carded a 72 in round three and finished in fifth place with a total of 214. Freshman Gary Woodland (Berryton, Kan.) finished in a career-best sixth place after he shot a three-round total of 215. Junior Kevin Ward (Leawood, Kan.) shot a final-round 69, including a back-nine score of 29, for a three-round total of 221 and a tie for 19th place. Junior Andrew Price (Lake Forest, Ill.) finished in a tie for 29th after he shot a 76 in his final round for a three-round total of 224. Sophomore Ryan Rainer (Norman, Okla.) competed as an individual and finished in a tie for 40th with a three-round 227 total.

"Winning by that many strokes is good for our confidence," Randall said. "We also beat every team competing from our district which says a lot about how we played this tournament."

Kansas returns to action on March 8-9, when it travels to Lafayette, La., to compete in the Louisiana Classics Invitational at the Oakbourne Country Club.
