Hey Illini Fans! 

As many of you probably know we just recently competed in the Big Ten Championship at French Lick Resort. Competing for Illinois at our conference tournament is truly an experience of a lifetime and one that I especially cherished this being my senior year. The resort is incredibly nice, however we all learned it's best to stick with a teammate as it's pretty easy to get lost. We started off the weekend with a practice round at The Donald Ross Course which is an amazing test of golf. The course is very hilly with thick rough and challenging greens. That night we enjoyed a banquet hosted by the French Lick Resort and Big Ten for all the teams including keynote speaker Holly Sonders.
