Round 3

Day 2 of the championship saw KU turn in their best round of the tournament so far. The team score of 287 was four strokes better than round one and seven better than round two. Unlike the first two rounds, the pacesetter for the KU was freshman Will King. He shot a 2 under-par 68. Will bogeyed the second hole, but then strung together 4 straight birdies on holes 4 thru 7 and made the turn at -3. On the backside, he bogeyed holes 10, 13, and 18, but offset those in part with an eagle on 17. William Duquette had another good round on Tuesday shooting a 4 over-par 74. Overall he leads the way for KU with a total of 216 and 6 over par and is in 16th place. Both Will King and Cecil Belisle have a total of 220 and 10 over par and are tied for 26th place.
