Indiana men’s golf head coach Mike Mayer announced the schedule for the 2022-23 season on July 6, just six days after naming Tyler Schmutz the program’s new assistant coach.
The regular season schedule consists of ten stroke play events — six in the fall and four in the spring — in addition to the Big Ten Match Play Championships. The conference tournament takes place on the first weekend in February, where the Hoosiers will attempt a first-place three-peat in 2023.
“Our 2022-23 schedule will give us the opportunity to compete against many of the top teams in the country at some of the best tournaments and venues in college golf,” Mayer said in a release. “It will help us as we prepare to make a run at the 2023 Big Ten Championship and our ultimate goal of an NCAA championship.”
The season will tee off at the Fighting Irish Classic on Labor Day weekend at the Warren Golf Course in South Bend, Indiana. Indiana’s other two September events, the Fighting Illini Invitational and Windon Memorial Classic, are events that the Hoosiers also took part in last season.
In October, Indiana will travel to three states to play in three events over the course of three weeks. The schedule begins with a trip to West Lafayette for the Purdue Fall Invitational, followed by the Quail Valley Collegiate in Vero Beach, Florida, and the Williams Cup in Wilmington Beach, North Carolina.
The Hoosiers will take a 104-day pause after the Williams Cup before beginning the spring season in Florida with the Big Ten Match Play Championships, an event Indiana has won the last two years. This event is the only one in February for Indiana. The Hoosiers will play in two events in both March and April to conclude the regular season.
The only home event this season will be the Hoosier Collegiate at the Pfau Course from April 8-9 in Bloomington. This event was held in September 2021, where Indiana finished third out of 15 teams.
Postseason play will commence with the Big Ten Championships from April 28-30 at Galloway National in New Jersey. Should Indiana qualify for the NCAA postseason, Regionals would take place May 15-17 and Finals are scheduled for May 26-31 at Grayhawk Golf Course in Scottsdale, Arizona.
