EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan State men's golf team returns to competition this weekend at the Windon Memorial Classic, hosted by Northwestern University at Skokie Country Club (7,081-yard, par-71) in Glencoe, Ill. Play will begin on Sunday at 9:20 a.m. ET with 36 holes and conclude Monday with the final 18 at 9 a.m. ET.
"Another great event and golf course ahead of us at the Windon Memorial this weekend," said Spartan head coach Casey Lubahn. "Skokie Country Club is a classic venue with a lot of tradition and history. It should be a good test for our guys.
"I have liked where the team has been trending the last couple events and I expect that to continue this weekend. It will be extremely important to put up five good scores every day. Consistency is our mantra around the program of late and it will continue to be this weekend."
In addition to Michigan State and the host Wildcats, the field includes Coastal Carolina, UC Davis, DePaul, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Harvard, Indiana, Lamar, Marquette, Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee and Toledo.
Moseley has led MSU through the first three events with a 74.3 scoring average, having posted two top-15 individual finishes. Rutledge is off to a good start in his initial campaign, placing second on the team with a 74.6 average, including having all nine of his rounds counted and posting two top-20 showings. After a rough opening tournament, Clouser bounced back last weekend to card a 73.3 scoring average over the six rounds and finish in the top-20 in both events.
As a team, the Spartans are coming off a weekend where they finished sixth at both the Wolf Run Intercollegiate and the Inverness Intercollegiate, completing 108 holes of competition in four days.
