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.
Mike Small’s program is so good. Illinois finished at +28 over, which is really good. They’ll stay in the top 25.
Here’s the final card:
Freshman Adrian Dumont de Chassart took a share of the individual title with a +2 on the three-day weekend. He tied with Minnesota’s Angus Flanagan.
Giovanni Tadiotto finished individually in seventh.
