#CountryClubU: Championship Sunday Updates

Men’s and Women’s Tennis dropped the Big Ten championship matches.

Today is Sunday, April 28, 2019.

And Illinois has the chance to win not one, not two, but THREE Big Ten championships.

The Illini’s country club gauntlet of Men’s Tennis, Women’s Tennis and Men’s Golf all have a chance to own the conference’s title by the end of the day.

Men’s Golf

UPDATE: Illinois men’s golf has done it again, winning its fifth consecutive Big Ten championship and 10th title in 11 years.

The Illini pulled away from Purdue on the back nine, coming in first of the 14 Big Ten teams, and nearly 50 strokes ahead of last-place Wisconsin.

Domination for the Illini, who are headed back to the NCAA championships.


And Men’s Golf is already off and in the lead on the weekend’s final day.

Getting there, up by a few strokes. (10:17 a.m.)

Purdue making a run. (11:05 a.m.)
