After low temperatures caused high scores during the first round of stroke play on Friday at Rich Harvest Farms outside Chicago, rain and thunderstorms kept the 24 teams off the course on Saturday.

Alabama, which claimed the NCAA title in 2013 and 2014, will make its eighth NCAA National Championship appearance in the last 10 years. White shot one under over the first nine holes, tallying birdies on holes four and seven and shooting par on holes one, two, three, six, eight and nine.

Hardy, a junior from Glenbrook North, tied for the individual title at 3-under 213 with New Mexico's Andrej Bevins.

He started the tournament strong but fell as the event progressed. "Naperville Country Club's handsome and award-winning private championship golf course provides the ideal backdrop and right amount of challenge to prepare these talented collegiate amateur golfers in their quest for a championship title". He led the Nittany Lions to a fifth-place finish in the 14-team field.

Sophomore Charles Huntzinger (Duluth, Ga.) shot a 2-over 73 to finish with a score of 220 and tied for 27th, while freshman Alec Bard (New Hartford, N.Y.) shot 8-over and finished tied for 51st. Seiple finished 4-over on the tournament and tied for 25th place. Stanford, Arizona State, Ohio State and Baylor were tied for third at 23 over. He shot a 69, 69 and 68 to beat the runners-up by three strokes - and he was the only golfer to break 70 each round. The lone individual advancing to the NCAA Championship is Chandler Phillips from Texas A&M who finished in seventh at 2-under.

As it turns out, home course advantage can be important in golf.

"The Illini golf way is just finding a way to get it done no matter what, no matter the conditions", IL junior Nick Hardy said.

The Furman Women's Golf Team and the Kent State Women's Golf team practiced at Naperville Country Club (NCC) this past week.
