Kyle Dobbs will be looking to the rest of his Michigan teammates to make a strong showing for the Wolverines at the
Northern Intercollegiate golf tournament this weekend. It should serve as good preparation for the upcoming Big Ten season.
Men's golf looking good heading
toward Northern Intercollegiate

For the Daily
The Michigan men's golf team
looks to build momentum from its
season-opening third-place finish at
the Falcon Invitational last weekend,
as it heads to Columbus this week-
end for the Northern Intercollegiate
The tourney's schedule consists
of 36 holes tomorrow and 18 holes
on Saturday and will be played at
the Scarlet Golf Course on the cam-
pus of Ohio State. This course is
also the site of the Big Ten champi-
onship tournament in May.
Michigan is looking at the
Northern as a true test of where it
stands in the Big Ten and the
region. All 18 teams that will play
in Columbus will compete with the
Wolverines later in the season to
advance into post-season tourna-
ments. Amongst those competing
are all of the Big Ten universities.
six Mid-American Conference
schools and Marshall.
"This is probably the toughest
tournament of the season."
Michigan coach Jim Carras said.
"There are several quality teams
here, and we need to be able to beat
them to prove ourselves this sea-
Carras will field his quintet of
David Jasper, Michael Harris, Isaac
Hinkle, Adam Anderson and Justin
Hicks on the Scarlet Course. Jasper,
Harris, and Hinkle competed in the
Falcon Invitational two weeks ago,
performing well. Jasper finished
second overall, shooting an even-par

However, the winner of the
Falcon, Ball State's Jaime Broce,
will also be on the links.
The Cardinals started out their
1996-97 season in style at the
Falcon, finishing second, only three
shots behind Nebraska.

Intercollegiate tournament
off this weekend include the host
Buckeyes, who return to defend their
Big Ten title. Ohio State also looks
to take the next step in proving itself
as an NCAA power. The Buckeyes
finished one shot short of making it

to the NCAA finals last season.
Other high-quality teams looking
to make a splash this weekend
include Indiana, the only Big Ten
team to make to the NCAA finals
last season. The Hoosiers also
return Big Ten Player of The Year
Randy Leen.
Minnesota and Northwestern,
both central regional qualifiers las
season, are looking for bigger an
better things this season. The
Golden Gophers return central
regional individual champion Rob
Kerr, while the Wildcats return from
a 13th-place finish at the central
regional last season. Other teams to
look out for include Wisconsin and
Miami (Ohio).
After finishing with a flourish at
the Falcon, the Wolverines under-
went some problems with consisten
cy in the two weeks between tourna-
ments. Anderson and licks are
making their first appearances of the
season, which changes the outlook
of the team this weekend.
"We could be playing a little bet-
ter," Carras said. "We have had
some low scores, but we have had
higher scores than we can afford to
have this weekend.
"The addition of Justin and Adan$
did make for some adjustments this
week, but they are experienced play-
ers who should do well."
After a practice tournament this
afternoon, the Northern
Intercollegiate will get underway
tomorrow morning with the first two
rounds. The final round will begin
Saturday morning.
