The Butler men's golf team wound up in 18th place at the weather-shortened adidas Hoosier Invitational hosted by Indiana University on Saturday and Sunday, March 29-30. Cold temperatures delayed the start of the tournament on Saturday and rains caused the final round to be cancelled on Sunday.
Sophomore Kyle Thomas paced the Bulldogs with a par of sub-80 rounds on the par 71 IU Championship Golf Course. He shot a 79 in the opening round and then added a 74 in the second round. His 36-hole total of 153 left him in a tie for 53rd place in the tournament.
