K-State looks to build momentum at Big 12 Championship


With six spring meets in the bag, K-State men’s golf tees off from the Big 12 Men’s Golf Championship today in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Southern Hills Country Club as the ninth seed.

“We are excited to get to Southern Hills for the Big 12 Championship,” head coach Grant Robbins said to K-State Sports. “It will be a great experience for our young guys to compete on a major championship golf course against some of the country’s elite teams.”

The Wildcats are coming off a 10th-place performance at the Hawkeye Intercollegiate last weekend. Redshirt sophomores Matt Green and Hank Simpson finished 36th and 46th, respectively, to lead K-State at the meet, and are two candidates looking for improvement in Oklahoma this week.

The Wildcats will be paired with seventh-seed Iowa State and eighth-seed Kansas on day one of the tournament beginning at 8 a.m. today.
