ZIONSVILLE, Ind. - With a quick turnaround from its last tournament, the Miami University men's golf team returns to action this weekend when it participates in the Wolf Run Intercollegiate. The RedHawks will play 36 holes on Saturday and finish the event with one final round of 18 holes on Sunday.
Miami is coming off a fourth place finish at the Marshall Invitational Sept. 10-11. Junior Brett Tomforhde led the way for the Red and White with a three round score of even-par, tying for 12th place.
After the success at Marshall, Miami will field the same lineup at Wolf Run. Tomfohrde will be joined by fellow senior Ben Peacock, redshirt junior Mark MacDonald, junior Austin Kelly and sophomore Scott Cahill. The 14-team field will see the RedHawks face several local schools, including Mid-American Conference rivals Akron, Eastern Michigan and Northern Illinois. Also at the tournament is the host Indiana, along with Kentucky, Illinois, Texas Tech, Ohio State, Butler, Michigan State, Wisconsin, IUPUI and IPFW.
"I think it's safe to say we're all pretty amped up for this weekend," said head coach Zac Zedrick. "Wolf Run is not only one of my favorite golf courses, but one of the best in the country. It tests absolutely every phase of your game, especially the mental component. Along with the golf course, it's an excellent field, so this weekend will be a great indicator of where we're at right now. We have to be patient, though. Wolf Run will challenge you in a lot of ways and if we can stay in the moment and roll with the punches, we'll be fine."
After competing at the Wolf Run Intercollegiate, Miami will next be in action Sept. 22-23 when it participates in the D.A. Weibring Intercollegiate in Bloomington, Ill.
