Chase Hanna wins Kansas Match Play Championship
We are not sure what Chase Hanna had on his
birthday wish list, but we can only assume that
winning the 103rd Kansas Amateur on his
birthday would be right up top.

Hanna, who turned 19 on Sunday, got the best of
Wichita junior golfer Sam Stevens by a 5 and 3
margin in the 36-hole final match on Sunday at
Indian Hills Country Club.
Stevens, who turned 17 on earlier this
month, has one year of high school left before
taking his talents to Stillwater to play for the
Oklahoma State Cowboys golf team.
The battle between the talented junior golfers was
all square after the morning 18-hole session.
Hanna used early birdies in the afternoon session
to take control of the match and built a sizable
lead before closing out Stevens on the 33rd hole.
Hanna, who will play for the Kansas
Jayhawks golf team in the fall, adds to his trophy
case this summer having already won the 54th
Kansas Boys Junior Amateur title last month as
well as the Missouri Junior Amateur crown.
Congratulations to both Chase and Sam on a
phenomenal championship as well as the rest of
the championship contestants.
Golf Association would also like to thank the
membership and staff of Indian Hills Country Club
for hosting the 103rd Kansas Amateur! This is
the third time that Indian Hills Country Club has
hosted the Kansas Amateur. Previous years were
1985 and 2003.
