WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The No. 46 Purdue men's golf team will continue its spring season on Monday and Tuesday when it competes at the Columbia Orthopedic Group Mizzou Intercollegiate in Columbia, Mo.
The 54-hole event will be contested at The Club at Old Hawthorne, a par-72, 7,221-yard facility opened in the spring of 2007. The 15-team field will play 36 holes on Monday beginning at 8 a.m. ET, followed by 18 on Tuesday at 9 a.m. ET.
Team stroke-average leader Tyler Duncan, who averages 71.83 strokes per round this season and has six top-10 finishes in eight starts, will play No. 1 for the Boilermakers in Columbia. Duncan is coming off a tie for ninth at last weekend's LSU Invitational.
Junior Jakob Ziegler will play No. 2 for Purdue and look to carry over the momentum from LSU that saw him shoot 211 (-5) and claim individual runner-up honors. Freshman Justin Cho, who ranks second on the team with a 73.71 scoring average, will play No. 3 and sophomore Adam Schenk will play No. 4.
The Boilers are still qualifying for the fifth spot in their lineup and an individual spot in Columbia, with junior Henry Plager, redshirt freshman Enzo Perez and freshman Ben-Marvin Egel still in the running for the two spots.
The Boilermakers will be paired with IUPUI and Nebraska for Monday's opening rounds.
