A LOOK AHEAD
The Hoosiers will stay with the match play theme next weekend as they head to PGA National-The Champions Course for the Big Ten Match Play Championship in Palm Beach, Fla. The event will give the Hoosiers, as well as the rest of the Big Ten, a championship venue as it is being held two weeks prior to the PGA Tour's Honda Classic at the same course.
