Weir Starts off Strong at Kansas City Shootout
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas State women's golfer Chloe Weir carded an 8-over par 152 on Monday and enters final-round play in a tie for 12th place following the first 36 holes of the Kansas City Shootout at the par-72, 6,124-yard Shoal Creek Golf Club.
Competing in her seventh event of the year, Weir carded identical scores of 4-over par 76 in each round as she is the top player in the field competing solely as an individual.
“Chloe did well today. She recovered from a rough start in testing conditions,” assistant coach Stewart Burke said. “She will need to continue to show patience tomorrow and trust her game to move up into the top 10.”
A product of Belfast, Northern Ireland, Weir enters the final round of play one shot away from a tie for 10th and eight behind the leader, Anna Wilcoxson of Western Michigan. The freshman carded five birdies on the day as she is poised to earn the first top-20 finish of her career.
Weir tees off the final round of the Kansas City Shootout at 8:30 a.m., on Tuesday. Live stats can be followed on www.golfstat.com and final results will be posted on www.kstatesports.com following the conclusion of play.
