Senior Tate Heintzelman puts on his bag during the Hoosier Collegiate Invitational on April 4 at the Pfau Course. The IU men's golf team will be competing at the Robert Kepler Intercollegiate on Saturday and Sunday in Columbus, Ohio.

The IU men’s golf team will compete in the Robert Kepler Intercollegiate this weekend at the Scarlet course in Columbus, Ohio, in the finale of the team’s regular season.

The Scarlet Course, named for Ohio State’s school colors of scarlet and gray, was renovated by Jack Nicklaus, who attended Ohio State in 2006. The tournament is named for former Ohio State head coach Robert Kepler, who coached the team from 1938-1965.

The Hoosiers’ lineup, in order, will be freshmen Clay Merchent and Drew Salyers, junior Mitch Davis, senior Ethan Shepherd and junior Harry Reynolds. 

Merchent and Salyers currently hold the two best season averages by freshmen in program history with 71.80 and 72.53, respectively.

Competing teams, which will include Michigan, Iowa, Purdue and Rutgers, will play two rounds on Saturday before a final round Sunday morning. 

IU last competed in the event in 2017 and last won the competition in 1980.
