SUGAR GROVE, Ill. - The Indiana Hoosiers men's golf team posted a 9-over par 293 in the first round at the Northern Intercollegiate on Saturday at Rich Harvest Farms to land in a tie for sixth. The second round of the event was suspended due to darkness after the tournament began with a fog delay earlier in the morning.

Junior Brant Peaper had the low round amongst the Hoosiers, finishing with an even-par 71 to tie for ninth. Peaper racked up four birdies in round one, including three during a four-hole span on the front side.
After two early bogeys from senior David Erdy, the Boonville, Ind. native strung together 14 consecutive pars to end his opening 18 at 2-over 73 and in a tie for 25th. Fellow senior Chase Wright recorded a 3-over par 74 and is tied for 31st.
