Indiana Finishes Third At Wolf Run Intercollegiate
Sept. 23, 2007
ZIONSVILLE, Ind. - The Indiana men's golf team started the second day of the Wolf Run Intercollegiate at Wolf Run Golf Club (par 71, 7,195 yards) in Zionsville, Ind. in second place, four shots behind the University of Michigan and three shots ahead of Penn State. When the dust settled on Sunday, it was Penn State that came out on top followed by Michigan and Indiana.
Penn State posted a three round total of 862 (292-284-286) to take the team title while Michigan had a score of 868 (283-286-299). Indiana's final round of 296 gave them a total of 869 (287-286-296) for the tournament.
"The course was playing like it always does," Indiana head coach Mike Mayer said, "very difficult. The Wolf definitely showed its teeth today. We made a couple mistakes early and late and that kept us from making a run but to come in third in this field is pretty good."
The top individual performer for the Hoosiers was Seth Brandon who finished second overall with a score of one-under par 212 (68-69-75). Michigan's Nick Pumford took home medalist honors with a three-under par 210 (70-73-67). However, his score did not count towards the team score because he was playing as an individual.
Jorge Campillo rebounded after a 76 in the second round on Saturday to fire a final round one-under par 70 to tie for fifth place.
"Jorge played a great round today,"Mayer said, "with 17 pars and one birdie. Seth had a couple hiccups that kept him from coming first overall but a second place finish is still very good."
Alex Martin finished the tournament with a 222 (77-70-75) to tie for 24th while Drew Allenspach was just one stroke behind at 223 (73-74-76). Tad Sacheck battled his way to a top 50 finish with a 228 (78-73-77).
"We have improved at each tournament so far this year," Mayer said, "and we will continue to try to improve with each tournament we play."
The Hoosiers return to the links next weekend in Chicago, Ill. for the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
