SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Inclement weather forced the suspension of second round play at the NCAA Men's Golf Central Regional on Friday. Indiana was one of three schools in the 14-team field to finish its round, posting a 6-over-par 286.
Notre Dame and the Warren Golf Course are hosting the regional, where the top-five teams will advance to the NCAA Championship (June 1-6). IU is currently tied for ninth place at 11-over-par 571 (285-286).
First-round leader Stanford (-4) remains in the top spot followed by Florida State (-1), Northwestern (+2), Florida (+5) and Michigan (+6). Michigan, Iowa (+7) and Indiana completed their rounds this afternoon.
Sophomore David Erdy leads the Hoosier contingent at 1-under 139. He shot an even-par 70 in round two after opening with a 69. Erdy currently shares seventh place, three shots behind Michigan's Matt Thompson.
True freshman Brant Peaper matched Erdy's 70 and moved into a share of 28th place. Peaper carded a 73 in his NCAA debut on Thursday and sits at 143 thru two rounds.
