Because the university funds and the athletics funds are separate.So that accounts for the constant change of uniforms, I guess. But why is it so expensive for instaters to go to U of I?
Of course they are competitive. It is one of the best public universities in the world. They get students from all 50 states and about a quarter of their students are from other countries.Yes, I understand, but is Illinois now competitive in attracting out-of-state students? Great state, lousy state government. But great golf program.
Saw someone with a sweet orange block I rain jacket in one of the practice rounds on the Golf Channel's Live From coverage.Great start for Thomas Pieters, the lone Illini in the PGA Championship. He's currently T5 at -3, three strokes off of the lead. Great to see Thomas playing well again!
In the Web.com tour, Nick Hardy and Brian Campbell are T4 and T12, respectively, and close to the lead at the Ellie Mae classic. Guthrie has some work to do to make the cut.
Best of luck this weekend. The PGA Championship is in the St. Louis area, anybody going?
Not at all surprised, Illini Nation is always out there! Pieters is now T4 and definitely in great shape after a 66 today. Should be in one of the last few groupings tomorrow (hopefully some TV time?).Saw someone with a sweet orange block I rain jacket in one of the practice rounds on the Golf Channel's Live From coverage.
Yes to both points. TP can take a lot of good feelings home tonight. And it is almost a lock to be Koepka, Scott or Woods. 1 stroke separates Tiger from the two leaders. Great stuffPieters with a par on 18 to finish -10 for the tournament. Currently T5, though it looks like it'll come down to Koepka/Tiger/Scott unless someone else surges at the end. Hopefully he can build on this back in Europe (their season runs to Dubai in November).
