    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).

IU shared fourth with Notre Dame at 891, just one shot behind Arkansas and No. 36 Wisconsin. Third-ranked Lamar won the tournament by 22 strokes at 868.

    Last Time Out
    Facing a challenging field and playing a difficult course for the second straight week, the Hoosiers finished ahead of No. 31 Michigan State and No. 32 Minnesota thanks in large part to the play of junior Drew Allenspach and sophomore Alex Martin.

    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.

    Mr. Consistency
    As the Hoosiers prepare to host the Wolf Run Intercollegiate a new face has emerged as the No. 1 golfer in the lineup. Sophomore Alex Martin, who has recorded back-to-back top-25 finishes, has moved into the top spot.

    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.
