Spartans in Third Place at Hoosier Collegiate Invitational

East Lansing, Mich. – Michigan State’s men’s golf was in third place among 15 teams before the second round of the Hoosier Collegiate Invitational was halted due to darkness on Saturday evening.

The two-day, 54-hole tournament was slated to tee off at 9 a.m. on Saturday, but pushed the start back to 10:30 a.m. due to frost. The 15-team field will complete the second round on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. before starting the third and final round.

The Spartans shot an 11-over par 295 in the opening round to finish in third place and were at 8-over par with players needing to complete five holes.

Host Indiana leads the field at 4-over par, including a 7-over par 291 in the first round, with Notre Dame second at 13-over par and the Spartans two shots back in third place. High Point (17-over par) and Rice (18-over par) round out the top-five teams.
