Illinois wins sixth straight Big Ten title

“Winning or losing is just a by-product of how you operate that day, and how you handle situations,” head coach and Danville native Mike Small added. “We were down and out; it was not looking good. But we built a little momentum – it started on No. 9 and No. 10 – and all of a sudden, we just caught the train and played really solid. Eight-under par the last 10 holes for our scoring guys, and 10-under over the last 10 holes for our entire team, in these conditions and on this golf course is pretty special.”
Michale Feagles had a 72 in thelast round and Giovanni Tadiotte had a 71 to hlep the team and Adrien Dumont de Chassart shot a 74 to end up second individually with a score of 218 for the three rounds.
Tommy Kuhl and Jerry Ji each had a 73 for the Illini to close out a round of 289 for the team.

“We hit less than 40 percent of our fairways this entire week. Playing out of this rough, with these greens, is a testament to their grit. It’s a testament to their short games and their ability to hold there, and close it out at the end.”
