    SKOKIE, Ill. - The Indiana Men's Golf team shot a final round team score of 15-over par 299 on Monday to finish is seventh place out of 15 teams at the Windon Memorial Tournament at Skokie Country Club just outside Chicago. Junior Hugo Menendez was the top individual performer for the Hoosiers, as he capped off his tremendous tournament with a one-under par round of 70 on Monday to finish in third place overall.

    "Hugo Menendez had an outstanding tournament," Indiana head coach Mike Mayer said following Monday's round. "He is getting better and better and continues to gain more confidence with each round. He really did the job he needed to do this week and now he knows he can play at the highest level and I expect to see more of this in the future from him."

    In the final round, it was Menendez that once again led the way with a one-under par round of 70 for Indiana despite a blustery day on the course that saw winds gusting over 20 miles per hour in the afternoon. Brant Peaper fired a three-over 74 and Corey Ziedonis followed with a 75. David Mills final round 80 was the fourth score that counted for Indiana. Sean Stone, playing in his first collegiate tournament with the team (played the first two tournaments as an individual) closed the tournament with an 88.

    "We just never really got it going as a team," Mayer said. "We were not able to get everyone on the same page at the same time. It took us a while to get comfortable with the greens and how fast and firm they were. But we know that we have to do a better job with that because we will see more of the same next weekend at Olympia Fields."

     

     

    As a team, Indiana used rounds of 298, 298 and 299 to get to their team score for the three rounds of 895, five shots out of a tie for fifth place. Ohio State (881) beat out the host school, Northwestern (882) for the team title.

    The medalist race was also a one-stroke affair with John Callahan (212) from Northwestern, playing the tournament as an individual and not part of the Wildcats team score, edging out Ben Wheeler (Coastal Carolina by one stroke.

    Indiana will continue tournament play next week at the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational at Olympia Fields Country Club. The tournament begins on Sunday (Sept. 30) and runs through Tuesday (Oct. 2).
