    SUGAR GROVE, Ill. - The Indiana men's golf team started round two of the Northern Intercollegiate in 11th place but a strong showing on Saturday, posting a team score of 297, now has the Hoosiers in eighth place heading into Sunday's final round. David Mills' second round score of 4-under par 68 tied for the best individual round of the day and moved him into a tie for fourth place individually for the tournament.

    "What an outstanding round by David Mills," Indiana head coach Mike Mayer said. "We needed a low round today and he gave it to us. We need his leadership this season and today she really showed it. I was also pleased with how Max Kollin responded today. We gained a few spots on the leaderboard today and we are going to go out and see how many more teams we can pass tomorrow."

    Indiana now has a two round team score of 603 (306-297) and trails UT-Arlington by four strokes for seventh place.

    Mills played his first nine holes - the back nine - in 1-under par and then birdied three of his final four holes to finish the front nine at 3-under par for a score 68 on the round. His two round total score of 142 (74-68) puts him in fourth place at 2-under par for the tournament, just four strokes out of the first place individual.

    Freshman Max Kollin improved on his first round score by five strokes, posting a 1-over par 73 with two bogeys and one birdie. His two round total score of 151 leaves him in a tie for 34th place on the individual leaderboard.

    Nicholas Grubnich carded a 3-over par 75, also placing him in a tie for 34th individually. Hugo Menendez logged his second straight round of 81 and Will Seger came in with an 85.

     

     

    Playing as an individual in his first collegiate tournament, Andrew Havill posted his second consecutive round of 79 on Saturday, giving his a two round total of 158 and a tie for 67th.

    The Hoosiers will begin their final round on the back nine starting at 10:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. Live scoring is available at golfstat.com.
