MILTON, Ga. - Illinois golfer Thomas Pieters played his last event in orange and blue over the weekend as the Illini finished national runner-up at the NCAA Championship.

Pieters will now turn pro - after just his junior season - but he won't forget where he came from as he tries to make it big-time on the PGA Tour.
