BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - In search of back-to-back wins at the Pinehurst Intercollegiate, the No. 26 Indiana men's golf team is enjoying its spring break in Pinehurst, N.C. The Hoosiers will play in the fourth annual Pinehurst Intercollegiate on Sunday-Tuesday, March 16-18.
Indiana and East Carolina will co-host the tournament at Pinehurst No. 8 (par 72; 7,092 yards). This is the third consecutive season IU has hosted the event.
