This weekend, the No. 18 IU men’s golf team will stay in Indiana as it travels north to its rival’s ground for the Boilermaker Invitational. Purdue will host the event on Kampen Course. \nThe course is a par-72 location, and the Hoosiers will have more than 7,400 yards to play. The 13-team field includes No. 4 Charlotte, No. 23 Michigan State, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Kent State, Iowa State, Eastern Michigan, Xavier, Northern Illinois and Loyola (Chicago).\nThe Hoosiers are coming off a first-place team finish in the UMB Bank-Mizzou Tiger Classic. Junior Jorge Campillo earned his first Big Ten Golfer of the Week award of the season and the sixth of his career. Only Campillo and junior Seth Brandon have earned the honors this season. Campillo shot a 4-under-par 212 and captured his first championship of the season. \nFinishing fifth in the tournament was junior Drew Allenspach, who shot a 219. The Hoosiers took their second team championship of the season.\nThe last time IU saw Purdue was at the adidas Hoosier Invitational where weather took its toll and shortened the tournament. IU took fourth place in the tournament, while the Boilermakers finished four strokes in front of the Hoosiers and took third place.
