Han Plays Well, Makes Cut at Dixie Amateur
Jan. 5, 2009
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - Indiana University golfer Ren Han spent much of his holiday break on the golf course, competing at the Dixie Amateur down in Coral Springs, Fla. Han not only competed in the prestigious event, but also played well enough to make the cut.
Han opened the competition by shooting a 73, followed by a three-under 69 to advance to the next day. He then carded rounds of 73 and 78 to complete his 295 (+5) overall score.
The 2008 Dixie Amateur was played at the Heron Bay Golf Club. According to the official website for the Dixie Amateur, Heron Bay Golf Club is described as "an 18 hole championship golf course situated inside one of South Florida's most upscale residential communities. Both the course and practice facility were built to house the PGA Tour's Honda Classic (1997-2002). PGA TOUR player and Golf Course Architect Mark McCumber designed the course to be toughened up for tournament play."
This marks the first season in which the Dixie Amateur was hosted by the Heron Bay Golf Club. The rest of the Hoosiers will see this course once again very soon as the 2009 Big Ten Match Play Championships are set to be played on the same course.
