CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – Fighting Illini golf fans will have a great opportunity to see current and former Illini tee off this week as the Korn Ferry Tour makes its annual stop in Springfield for the Memorial Health Championship presented by LRS. Four Illini are in the field in the central Illinois event and six additional Illini alums also slated to tee off this week across the PGA Tour, DP World Tour, PGA Tour Champions, and PGA Tour Americas.


Adrien Dumont de Chassart and Nick Hardy are back in the field this week as the PGA TOUR tees off at the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club. Dumont de Chassart has made the cut in three straight tour starts since his T30 finish at the Byron Nelson in early May. Hardy has played through to the weekend in each of his last two starts, and five of his last seven since late March.


Brian Campbell, currently No. 11 on the Korn Ferry Tour points list and coming off a T8 finish last week at the Compliance Solutions Championship, headlines a quartet of Illini in the field this week at the Memoorial Health Champioinship presented by LRS at Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield, Illinois. 

Campbell will be joined by fellow alums Dylan Meyer and Michael Feagles, plus rising senior and reigning Big Ten Golfer of the Year Jackson Buchanan. Feagles and Buchanan each earned sponsor exemptions into the field.
