    BOISE, Idaho - Former Indiana men's golf standout Steve Wheatcroft carded a final round 6-under par 65 at Hillcrest CC in Boise, Idaho, to force a playoff with Steven Alker at the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco. On the first playoff hole, Wheatcroft buried a birdie putt to claim the win.

    Another for IU standout, Chase Wright, also had a strong weekend in Boise, posting a tie for fourth place on the leaderboard.

    Wheatcroft, who turned pro in 2001, birdied three of the final five holes in his final round to get into the playoff. It is his second career win on the Tour, with his other coming in 2011.

    Wright turned pro following his graduation in 2012, and picked up his fourth top 10 finish this year on the tour and his second in a row after a T7th finish at the Utah Championship presented by Zions Bank last week.
