Illini golfers set for NCAA Regionals

CHAMPAIGN - Defending national champion Thomas Pieters will start his run toward a second straight national title this weekend at the NCAA Regional.  The Illinois junior will try to become the first back-to-back national champion since Phil Mickelson did it in 1989-1990.

Meanwhile, the Illinois team will be aiming for a spot in the NCAA Championships as well.  They're headed to regionals for the sixth straight year, and they feel like they may be peaking at the right time coming off their fifth straight Big Ten title.
