The stroke play starts on Friday. Here is a nice article on the team and the upcoming tournament - by our friend Teddy Greenstein no less. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/college/ct-ncaa-golf-illinois-men-20170524-story.html I liked this quote by Jerry Rich: "Huge," Rich said of the Illini rally. "We've been working with Illinois for over a year. The key was, they had to get in." Rich wants to share his love for amateur golf with as wide an audience as possible. Illinois has more than 450,000 living alumni, according to its web site, some of whom plan to tailgate before rounds.
