Wildcats Faring Well at Kansas Amateur
GARDEN CITY, Kan. - Two future and one former Kansas State men's golfers advanced to the second round of match play during the 96th Kansas Amateur on Thursday.
Two rounds of stroke play preceded the match play championship, with four Wildcats advancing to the field of 64. Joe Ida, an incoming freshman from Lakin, Kan., earned the No. 1 overall seed after he tied for first in stroke play at 6-under par 137 (70-67). However, Ida was knocked out of the championship by Don Kuehn, 3&1.
Former Wildcat Tyler Cummins, who has recorded two victories in amateur championships this summer, claimed the No. 4 seed with a 4-under par 139 (70-69) in stroke play. He advanced to the second round of match play with a 3&2 victory over Luke Trammell.
Ross Geubelle and Jason Schulte, both incoming freshmen to the men's golf program this coming fall, will get to know each other a little better as they will face off in the second round of match play.
