Four Hoosiers in Golfweek/Sagarin Top 200
Jan. 4, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -
Head coach Mike Mayer and the Indiana Hoosiers men's golf team finished the fall season with two consecutive tournament titles, to go along with two top-five finishes. An integral part of that success was the steady performance of David Erdy, Chase Wright, David Mills, and Brant Peaper.
Their play vaulted them up the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings, as each player can currently be found among the top 200 players in the nation. Erdy leads the way at the No. 87 spot, after ending the fall with a team-best 72.40 average.
"I've never had a group of kids, in particular my top four, ranked as high as they are," said Mayer. "When you're looking at 3,000 Division One men's golfers that's pretty impressive."
Wright, a junior, and Mills, a freshman, check in at No. 131 and No. 132. Wright had a pair of top-ten performances to end the fall, while Mills displayed a remarkable consistency throughout his first collegiate events. Both players posted a scoring average of 72.93. That average puts Mills on pace for the second lowest season average for a freshman in school history behind Jorge Campillo's 72.67 in 2006.
Peaper is rated No. 177 after registering a trio of top-ten finishes this season. The sophomore followed up his successful fall with a runner-up finish at the Dixie Amateur.
