The Indiana men’s golf team trimmed four shots off their first round score, registering a team score of 292 (+12) on Saturday in the second round of the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational to gain sole possession of 10th place.
Although they are in 10th, Indiana is just nine strokes out of fourth place against many of the top teams in the country.
Today’s final round will get underway at 9:45 a.m. ET with live scoring on GolfStat.com.
As it has been at the start of the season, senior Andrew Havill led the way for the Hoosiers but was joined with a solid team effort to allow IU to retain its position on the leaderboard. Havill carded an even par round of 70 to move up to a tie for 14th with a score of 143 (+3). The native of Carmel, Indiana, is tied for second with nine birdies through two rounds.
He carded three birdies and to offset three bogeys on his first nine holes – the back nine on the course – before two birdies and two bogeys on his second nine left him at even par.
Meanwhile, junior Brendon Doyle showed a steady hand on the day by posting 15 pars to give him 27 through the first two rounds, which is tied for second in the field. His day started with a bogey on No. 10 and then a double bogey on No. 15 to make the turn at 3-over par. On his back nine, he registered eight pars and one bogey to give him a 74 for round two and a total score of 146 (+6) and a tie for 24th.
The lone freshman on the team, Brock Ochsenreiter, also added a 4-over par 74 in round two, after playing his first nine in 2-over par and then carding a double-bogey on his final hole to end a streak of eight pars. Individually, he is tied for 36th with a two-round score of 148 (+8) and is also tied for third having played the par 3’s in 1-under par through 36 holes.
The third round of 74 for IU on Saturday came from redshirt sophomore Jake Brown, who logged 14 pars and four bogeys on his round. He entered his 16th hole of the day just one over par, but finished with a trio of bogeys to put his 36-hole score at 151 (+11) and a tie for 51st.
Another junior, Matthew Weber, trimmed three shots off his first round score to shoot 77 in round two. He is tied for 73rd with a score of 157 (+17) through two rounds.
Competing as an individual is Jack Sparrow, who also improved on his first round score, shaving four shots off to register a 76 in round two and is tied for 71st with a score of 156 (+16).
