    As the Indiana men's golf team prepares for its third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament, IUHOOSIERS.com will take a look at the five members of the lineup that will compete in the East Regional.

    The Hoosiers will participate out East for the second straight season at the Lake Nona Golf Club in Orlando on Thursday-Saturday, May 18-20. The University of Central Florida and the Central Florida Sports Commission will serve as hosts of the regional.

    Up first is freshman Jorge Campillo. Campillo has played in the No. 1 position a majority of the season, and it will be no different when IU hits the links at Lake Nona.
