    JORGE HOGAN???
    Jorge Campillo is one of three finalists for the 2009 Ben Hogan Award, given to the top men's college golfer in the country, taking into account all collegiate and amateur competitions during a 12-month period.

    Campillo will be joined by fellow finalists Rickie Fowler of Oklahoma State and Clemson's Kyle Stanley in Fort Worth, Texas on May 22 for the Ben Hogan Award presentation, which will be broadcast live on GolfweekTV beginning at 9:15 EST with live chatting starting one hour prior.

    ALL-BIG TEN DUO
    Jorge Campillo was named the Big Ten Player of the Year once again, his second consecutive season with the honor. Alex Martin joins him on the All-Big Ten First Team.

    Campillo becomes the fifth golfer in Big Ten History to be named Player of the Year in consecutive seasons and the third all-time multiple award-winning Hoosier. Former Hoosiers Jeff Overton and Randy Leen won the award in 2004-05 and 1996-98, respectively. He is just the 10th player in conference history to earn four first-team recognitions.

    BACK IN THE PALMER CUP
    Jorge Campillo will represent Team Europe in the 2009 Palmer, marking the third consecutive year he has been selected to play in the event. The only other Hoosier to ever participate in the international competition was current PGA Tour member Jeff Overtion in 2005.

    INSTANT IMPACT
    True freshmen David Erdy and Chase Wright have immediately played key roles on one of IU's most talented teams of all-time. Erdy has been a main-stay in the line-up while Wright has cracked the line-up six times and is expected to man the No. 3 position this weekend.

    In Golfstat's latest freshmen class rankings, IU's first-year players ranked as the 15th-best in the country.

    JORGE'S ONSLAUGHT ON THE RECORD BOOKS
    Jorge Campillo is making an ascent up the all-time IU record books this season with his stellar play. Entering the weekend, Campillo's season round average of 70.64 is third all-time and his career round average is down to 72.23 (second all-time).

    NUMBERS DON'T LIE
    Jorge Campillo is atop the Golfstat Cup Standings with an adjusted scoring average of 70.64. An adjusted scoring average takes into account the stroke average of the entire field at each event and is arguably the best way to decide `who is college golf's' top player. As of now, the answer to that question is Campillo. Alex Martin is also in the top-100, slotted 84th entering the weekend.
