BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Miami University men’s golf team returns to the Midwest this weekend when it travels to Bloomington, Ind. for the Hoosier Invitational. The RedHawks will play 36 holes on Saturday and finish the tournament with one final round of 18 holes on Sunday.
The Hoosier Invitational takes place on the Indiana University Golf Course. A Jim Soutar design, it is par-71 and measures 6,813 yards in length.
After a fourth-place finish in last week’s FAU Spring Break Championship, the RedHawks will feature the same lineup in Bloomington. Representing Miami will be senior Brett Tomfohrde, junior Austin Kelly, sophomores Scott Cahill and Luke Shaughnessy and freshman Bud Radis.
The 17-team field at the Hoosier Invitational is completely Midwest based. Miami will be joined by Mid-American Conference rivals Toledo and Ohio. In addition to host Indiana, also participating are Michigan, IUPUI, Oakland, SIU-Edwardsville, Evansville, Illinois State, IPFW, Wright State, Western Illinois, Detroit, Youngstown State, Dayton and Butler.
"It's been great traveling south and competing against schools we don't typically see the majority of the season, but as we near the MAC Championship, it's time to get re-acclimated with golf here in the Midwest,” said Miami head coach Zac Zedrick. “The boys are excited to build off of their finish last week and see how we compete at Indiana. IU's golf course is very good, and although none of us have competed there, it's the type of golf course you typically see in this part of the country. It features rolling terrain, tree-lined fairways, and greens pitched from back to front. I think the familiarity with that type of layout will help us get acclimated quickly during the practice round, so we'll be ready to go when Saturday morning rolls around."
