Breaking news! Chase Hanna is good at golf!

The recent Shawnee Mission East grad and soon-to-be Kansas Jayhawk added yet another feather to his golfing cap over the weekend by winning the 103rd Kansas Amateur tournament, besting Wichita’s Sam Stevens in match play competition. The tournament, held at Indian Hills Country Club in Mission Hills, wrapped up Sunday, which happened to be Hanna’s 19th birthday.

Hanna entered the event seeded seventh, but won six match play rounds in a row to secure the title. Not a bad birthday present to get for yourself, fella.
