EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State men's golf head coach Casey Lubahn saw an opportunity to challenge his team in two great tournaments on two of America's top courses, it just happens that both events were scheduled on four consecutive days. As a result, the Spartans will play 108 holes of competition over the next four days.
Michigan State will play in the Wolf Run Intercollegiate at Wolf Run Golf Club (par-71, 7,195 yards) in Zionsville, Ind. on Saturday and Sunday, before heading back north for the Inverness Intercollegiate on Monday and Tuesday at the Inverness Club (par-71, 7,255 yards) in Toledo, Ohio.
"What a great weekend ahead of us - two great golf courses against great fields," said Lubahn. "This is why we have been working hard and we looking forward to executing better this week. We have an experienced lineup that has been through a lot, so I expect them to handle this trip very well."
The Michigan State lineup over this stretch will include seniors Dan Ellis, Dave Ellis and Matthew Moseley, sophomore McCormick Clouser and freshman Mitch Rutledge. Junior Carson Castellani will be playing as an individual.
Competition in the Wolf Run Intercollegiate, which features 36 holes on Saturday and 18 holes on Sunday, includes Akron, Butler, Eastern Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, IPFW, IUPUI, Kentucky, Miami (Ohio), Northern Illinois, Ohio State, Texas Tech and Wisconsin
