    MEN'S GOLF TEAM TIED FOR 14TH AFTER FIRST DAY

    HUNTINGTON, W.V. - The Indiana University men's golf team is tied for 14th place after the first two rounds of competition at the Marshall Invitational at Guyan Golf and Country Club. The Hoosiers battled winds up to 40 miles per hour, and shot 301 in the morning round and 308 in afternoon. Their total of 609 is 17 strokes behind leader Northwestern, 592 (298-294).

    The Hoosiers were led by sophomores Steve Wheatcroft and Rich Thomas and senior Brent Landry. Each fired a two round total of 10 over-par 152, putting them in a tie for 39th place. Wheatcroft opened the tournament with a 75, while Landry impressive fired a one-over-par 72. But both stumbled in the afternoon, Wheatcroft shooting 77 and Landry turning an 80. Thomas was consistent throughout the day, fired consecutive 76's.

    Overall leader D.A. Points (142) of Illinois is at even par for the tournament, turning in scores of 72 and 70.

    Coach Mike Mayer said he was pleased with the way his team hit the ball, but said they couldn't find a way to get the ball in the hole. "We'll just have to go out tomorrow, play well and see what happens."
