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.
