The rain poured down on the Illini Spring Classic on Sunday, shortening the Michigan men’s golf team’s weekend affair with a tenth place finish. Of the fourteen teams competing in Urbana, the Wolverines finished knotted up with Purdue. Their 613 total team strokes were 30 behind champion Akron.
However, the results on the wet course weren’t all disappointing for Michigan. Sophomore Jack Schultz had a memorable day on Sunday when he shot four-under-par for a round of 68. The day was good for his best on the season. Birdieing his last three holes, Schultz proved that his team was capable of finishing strong, even after mediocre starts.
Also impressive was freshman Joey Garber who finished one-under on the last day of the event.
The tournament marked the end of the regular season for Michigan. Next up for the Wolverines is the Big Ten Championships, beginning on April 29 in West Lafayette.
