Top-Ranked Illini Up to Par

The Illini men's golf team claimed the #1 ranking in the Golfstat computer rankings last week. For those who don't follow college golf, Golfstat is the primary rankings used to determine placement in the NCAA Regionals in May. The Illini followed that honor with their third-straight tournament win, the first time they've had a winning streak like that since now-Coach Mike Small was on the team.
The Illini have one more fall tournament before a couple-month winter break, but the signature win this year was the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational, where the Illini beat national contenders, including Oklahoma State, ranked #1 in the college Golfweek polls.
While there's plenty of golf to play this spring, Coach Small has built the type of program you would expect from the 2007 Low PGA Club Professional.
Go Illini!
