BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -
Members of the Indiana Men's Golf team kept their tournament game sharp over the winter break from classes, competing in a number of different tournaments and coming away with good results. While none of the tournaments effect their collegiate scores or team scores, it was a good way for them to get more tournament experience during some down time in the collegiate schedule.
Brant Peaper and John Beringer both competed in the Dixie Amateur in Coral Springs, Fla., along with former Hoosier David Erdy. It would be Erdy that had the best showing of the three, finishing in a three-way tie for eighth place with a four round total of 283 (69-71-74-69). His final round 69 was the best round of the day among the 73 players that made the cut for the final round. Peaper was just four strokes behind Erdy in 17th place with a four round total of 287 (70-70-72-75). Beringer finished in a tie for 63rd with a total score of 299 (73-71-75-80).
The tournament started with nearly 250 golfers playing one round each at Heron Bay, Woodlands Country Club and Palm Aire Country Club before the 54-hole cut brought 73 players back for a second go round at Heron Bay.
