Why is it so good every year? I mean they dont have the benefit of playing all year, its not like golfers have to make a mecca to Champbana to play some of the worlds finest courses? Ok, you had Stricker and my guy Steiney is Tigers agent, who has helped in recruiting kids down there,

You can look every year. FSU, ASU, TEXAS, S Carolina, LSU, etc etc...somehow the Illini are usually in the running?

I will assume Dr. Ken lets them use his golf dome, but even that cant replicate 6 months of playing real courses?

The Illini have one of the best college coaches and they have an absolute state of the art practice facility.
It is definitely a disadvantage to not have the weather other teams have to practice but they travel and
play all the warm events when it is cold at home.

Apparently they also just recently opened an outdoor facility that was modeled after the range at Augusta
