LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech women's golfer Kim Kaufman wrapped another successful summer tournament Tuesday afternoon with a second place finish at the Minnesota State Open, falling just two strokes off the lead at the Hastings Golf Club.

Kaufman entered the day a stroke off the lead after an even-par 72 opening round on Monday. The Clark, S.D. native could not cut into tournament champion Olivia Lansing's lead during Tuesday's second round, firing a 2-over 74 to finish two strokes back of Lansing, who fired a 1-over 73.

Leight Klasse and Elizabeth Stuart trailed Kaufman by a stroke for third place, while Julie Hennessy and Betsy Kelly were three strokes back in a tie for fifth place.

The tournament, which was held in Hastings, Minn., marks Kaufman's second-straight strong performance as she captured the South Dakota Women's Amateur Championship last weekend.
