    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana men's golf team (No. 60 Golfstat/No. 53 Golfweek) holds a 10-stroke lead after two rounds of the NYX Hoosier Invitational at the IU Golf Course in Bloomington. The Hoosiers followed up a strong 279 in round one with a solid 282 in round two to get to 7-under par for the tournament as a team.

    IU junior David Mills fired rounds of 70 and 66 and sits in first place at 6-under par individually. Brant Peaper and John Beringer are also inside the top 10 individually for the tournament.

    The 279 team score for Indiana in round one is the lowest team round since recording a 278 in round two of the Windon Memorial at the Evanston Golf Club on Oct. 16, 2011.

    Mills carded a 1-under par 70 in round one but then caught fire in round two with a 66, topping his previous career best by one stroke, and it's his fifth career round in the 60's at IU. He will be looking for his first collegiate tournament win.

    Senior Corey Ziedonis led the Hoosiers with a 3-under par 68 in round one, his low round of the season. It also matches his career-best round, which he has posted now four times in his career but the most recent was during his sophomore season. He followed that up with a 77 in round two for a two round total score of 145 (+3).

    Senior Brant Peaper also played well for Indiana with rounds of 70 and 69 for a total of 139 to stand in a tie for fourth place individually for the tournament. He has now broke 70 in five rounds this season.

    Senior John Beringer posted even-par 71 in round one and was steady once again in round two, carding another 71. His total score of 142 is good for a tie for ninth place individually. His 71-71 start matches his best 36-hole effort, which he turned in at this tournament during his freshman season.

     

     

    Senior Michael McGee was the fifth score for the Hoosiers with an 80 in round one but rallied on his second round to finish with a 76 for a total score of 156 and a tie for 73rd.

    On the Indiana "B" team - playing with just four players, sophomore Andrew Fogg led the way with a 6-under par 65 in round one, the low round of the tournament so far, and the lowest score of his young career. In round two he logged a 75 for a total score of 140 to put him in sixth place individually.

    Freshman Sean Stone was not far behind with a 3-under par 68 in round one, bettering his low round of the year by one stroke. He then closed with a 76 in round two to move into a tie for 13th with a score of 144.

    Another freshman, Max Kollin, logged rounds of a 77 and 76 for a 153 total and a tie for 60th. Junior Hugo Menendez came in with a 79 in round one and 75 in round two for a 154 overall score and a tie for 64th..

    The final round will begin at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday with a shotgun start.
