Alex Martin makes field for 2010 US Open

·

As Alex Martin stood at the first tee on the Brookside Golf Course in Columbus, Ohio, he shook hands with his playing partner for the day, 2008 U.S. Open runner-up Rocco Mediate. Little did Martin know that 12 hours, 137 shots and three playoff holes later, he would be heading to Pebble Beach, marking the second consecutive year that a member of the IU men’s golf team would be represented at the U.S. Open.

IU senior Alex Martin taking charge of young Hoosiers

·

When IU men’s golf coach Mike Mayer began searching for his 2006 recruiting class, senior Alex Martin, a Middletown, Ohio, native was a top priority. An accomplished junior golfer on and off the course, Martin’s hometown is a little less than three hours away from Bloomington and seemed like the perfect fit to pursue his career as a student athlete. However, the first step in the recruiting process took Mayer across the country to watch a young golfer who would blossom into an All-Big Ten player and a mainstay in the Hoosiers lineup all four years.
