MUNCIE, Ind. -- The Ball State men’s golf team will close out its fall schedule this week outside Atlanta at Kennesaw State’s Pinetree Intercollegiate.

The 54-hole tournament includes two rounds Monday starting at 8 a.m. and the final round Tuesday on a par-72, 7,108-yard layout at Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, Ga.

The 12-team field also includes Akron, Chattanooga, Florida Gulf Coast, Indiana, Kennesaw State, Louisville, Northern Illinois, Samford, Troy, Texas-Pan American, Winthrop and Wofford.

Ball State was runner-up to Kennesaw State at last year’s event, while Tyler Merkel tied for third place individually to lead the Cardinals.

The trio of Merkel, McCormick Clouser and Keegan McKinney has been a part of the Ball State lineup for every event this fall and will lead the team into this week’s event, as well. McKinney is the reigning Mid-American Conference Golfer of the Week after posting the best finish of his rookie campaign with a tie for 17th at the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate.

Zach Yinger and James Blackwell will round out the Cardinals’ lineup at Pinetree, while Tyler Ostrom will compete as an individual.

Ball State is paired with Kennesaw State and Winthrop for Monday’s opening rounds with live scoring for the tournament available at
