Men's Golf Tied For Third After Three Rounds at Big Ten Championship
April 27, 2013
FRENCH LICK, Ind. - Playing in cool, windy conditions with occasional drizzle, the Indiana men's golf team battled to a 12-over par team score of 300 in the third round of the Big Ten Men's Golf Championship. The tournament is being played on the Pete Dye Course in French Lick and will conclude with the final round on Sunday. The Hoosiers are tied for third place with Iowa with a three round total team score of 890 (299-291-300).
"I don't think we were ever really able to get going today," Indiana head coach Mike Mayer said. "There were some opportunities for us to get some momentum but we weren't able to take advantage."
The best round of the day for Indiana belonged to both Andrew Fogg and David Mills. Fogg went out in 1-under par before three bogeys on the back nine put him back over par for the round. The sophomore sits in a tie for 47th place individually with a overall score of 232 (79-79-74).
Mills round was somewhat the opposite, as he went out in 2-over par but was even on the back nine with a pair of bogeys and birdies on both of the par 5's . It is his third consecutive 74 this week for a total score of 222 (+6) and a tie for 13th individually.
Michael McGee and Corey Ziedonis were tied after the first day of the tournament and both went out on Saturday and posted rounds of 76 to remain tied with overall scores of 227 (+11) and in a tie for 29th individually. Both players had one birdie and five bogeys on their rounds.
Brant Peaper struggled to find a rhythm on Saturday, posting a 7-over par 79. He is now 3-over par (219) for the tournament, falling into a tie for fifth place in the race for medalist honors.
Illinois holds the team lead with a three round total team score of 870, ahead of Minnesota in second place by seven shots.
Thomas Pieters (Illinois) is the individual leader after carding his third straight round of 70, and will take a seven-stroke lead into the final round. He is 6-under for the tournament.
Indiana will tee off the first hole at 8:40 a.m. ET on Sunday for the third round, as they will once again be paired with Iowa.
