BIG TEN GOLFERS TO WATCH
Mills was a First Team All-Big Ten performer last year and finished fourth individually at the Big Ten Championships at the Pete Dye Course in French Lick.
Peaper played all 31 rounds for the Hoosiers last year and posted a scoring average of 74.81 including a 65 at the Windon Memorial, the lowest round by a Hoosier in 2011-12.
Ziedonis played in 28 rounds last year and was one of three players on the team to post 20 or more rounds of 75 or better on the year. He finished T23 at the NCAA Greensboro Regional for his best finish of the season.
Looking to pick up the slack will be David Mills, Corey Ziedonis and Brant Peaper, all of whom played 28 or more tournament rounds for the Cream and Crimson in 2011-12. Those three players combined for 15 Top 25 finishes last year and 63 round sof 75 or better.
Andrew Fogg (14 rounds) and Michael McGee (11) also so considerable time last year and will provide depth to the lineup. Nicholas Grubnich, John Beringer, Kyle Perry and Hugo Menendez saw limited tournament action but have performed well in qualifying for the team early in the season.
Stone comes to the Hoosiers from Harrison High School in Evansville, Ind. He was the Indiana High School State Champion last year, winning the tournament by three strokes and also led Harrison to the state team title.
