WESTFIELD, Ind. - From 11 down to a two-stroke victory, the Purdue men's golf team
rallied for its first tournament title of the season, coming at the Chatham Hills
Collegiate at Chatham Hills Golf Course.

The Boilermakers entered the final round 11 shots off the pace, but made up the
margin early in the back nine and held on for a two-shot victory with a 54-hole
total of 18-under par 846 (282-287-277). Northwestern was second at 16-under par
848, while Marquette finished third at 15-under par 849.

"I am just really proud of the guys on their win and their performance the last two
days. We played a great round on a really tough day," head coach Rob Bradley said.
"Joe Weiler bounced back today and really set the tone as the first one out. Cole
(Bradley) played really solid all week. This was a total team effort and everyone
really showed what they are capable of. This is a springboard we need into our trip
to Hawai'i and then the offseason."

The Boilermakers made their mark on the par 3's and par 4's, playing the holes in
even and 6-over par as a group respectively.

The Boilermakers placed two players in the top 10, led by Cole Bradley's third-place
finish at 10-under par 206 (66-72-68). Bradley recorded 16 birdies during the
tournament, en route to his second straight top-10 finish. Bradley has now posted
seven consecutive rounds of even-par or better, averaging 69.86 strokes per round
during that span - a total of 15-under par.
