    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana Hoosiers men's golf team (No. 27 Golfweek-Sagarin/No. 34 Golfstat) will head to Hilton Head, S.C. for the Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate on Feb. 21-22.

    The 54-hole event will be played at the Wexford Golf Club and is the first stroke play event of the spring season for the Hoosiers.

    THE VENUE
    Wexford Golf Club, the championship course at Wexford Plantation, was designed by William Byrd. The course is a par-72 and plays at 6,828 yards from the back tees.

    THE FIELD
    The Hoosiers are among a field of 14 teams that includes Davidson, Depaul, Elon, Francis Marion, Furman, Ohio, Presbyterian, Richmond, Samford, UConn, USC-Aiken, Western Carolina, and William & Mary. Indiana is the highest rated team in both rankings among the teams competing at Wexford.

    HOT HOOSIERS
    Indiana boasts a trio of players (Erdy, Wright, and Mills) with 2010-11 stroke averages of less than 73 per round heading into the Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate, as well as two (Peaper and Ziedonis) under 75.

    Erdy currently has a 73.40 career stroke average, which would be third in the Indiana all-time record book. Wright's 73.54 career average is good for fifth on the list.

    Mills is on pace for the second best freshman season scoring average in school history with a 72.93. Former Hoosier great Jorge Campillo holds the top freshman mark with a 72.67 average in 2006.

     

     

    WEEK IN REVIEW
    Indiana had a strong showing at the 2011 Big Ten Match Play Championship last weekend at the Champions Course at PGA National Resort. The Hoosiers finished runner-up to defending champion Northwestern after a stellar run to the finals.

    Indiana, competing as the No. 7 seed, opened with a dominant 6-0 victory over No. 10 seed Wisconsin in the first round. The Hoosiers followed up with an impressive 4-2 win against No. 2 seed Iowa in the quarterfinals and a 3-3 tiebreaker triumph over No. 3 seed Ohio State in the semifinals. Indiana led early on against Northwestern in the finale, but ultimately lost 4-2.

    Mills and Ziedonis both finished the event with a perfect 4-0 record to lead the Hoosiers. Erdy and Peaper each posted a 2-2 mark for Indiana.
