BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Hosting its first of three tournaments this season, the Indiana men's golf team welcomes 14 teams to the Wolf Run Intercollegiate on Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 22-23, in Zionsville, Ind. The event will be played at Wolf Run Golf Club, which is set up as a par 71 with a yardage of 7,195.
The event consists of three rounds, 36 holes played on Saturday and the final 18 holes taking place on Sunday. Fourteen teams will join Indiana in the field, including Big Ten rivals Michigan, No. 34 Northwestern and Penn State. In addition, Arkansas, Ball State, Denver, Eastern Michigan, IUPUI, Kent State, Kentucky, Missouri, Toledo, UNC-Greensboro and Virginia will round out the field.
Tournament play begins Saturday with a shotgun first-round start at 9 a.m. EDT. The second 18 opens with a shotgun start following the completion of the opening round. On Sunday, the final round commences with an 8:30 a.m. start and teams teeing off from the 1st and 10th tees.
Indiana is hosting the tournament for the second straight season. Last season, the Hoosiers finished seventh at the event. Jorge Campillo led IU with a sixth-place showing. The Caceres, Spain, native carded a 218 (69-73-76).

Sophomore Alex Martin will play in the No. 1 position at the Wolf Run Intercollegiate. He will be joined by juniors Drew Allenspach, Seth Brandon and Jorge Campillo. Fifth-year senior Tad Sacheck will play in the fifth slot, while true freshman Paul Park will receive his first collegiate action as an individual.
Martin leads the team with a 74.00 scoring average after shooting consecutive 222s in the first two tournaments of the season. Allenspach also shot 222 at the Gopher Invitational last weekend. Brandon (74.33) and Campillo (74.67) will make their third consecutive starts, while Sacheck (76.50) is appearing in his third tournament of the season and just the fifth event of his career.
Last Time Out
Allenspach, who received his first action of the season, carded a 73 in the final round to finish in a tie for 16th place at 222. Martin joined his teammate in 16th place and matched him with a 1-over-par 73 on the final 18. Junior Jorge Campillo was the third Hoosier to claim a share of 16th.
Martin holds a 74.00 scoring average into the event after firing back-to-back 222s at the season-opening Inverness Intercollegiate and then the Gopher Invitational. He has carried the momentum he gained from a successful summer of golf, where he qualified for the U.S. Amateur Championship and finished third overall and as the low amateur at the Ohio Open Championship.
