The Iowa men's golf team will end its regular season this weekend at the Boilermaker Invitational in West Lafayette, Ind.

The 54-hole tournament will be held at the Kampen Course, heralded by the Golf Channel as one of the nation's best college courses.

Iowa head coach Mark Hankins said the tournament will allow the Hawkeyes to play a different kind of golf than they are used to.

"Purdue's a great golf course," he said. "It allows us to compete on a different style of course than Finkbine, which helps us round out our game."

The Hawkeyes will join a field with five other ranked teams — No. 21 Kent State, No. 30 Wichita State, No. 34 TCU, No. 35 Illinois, and No. 43 Indiana.

Hankins said he expects a top finish from the Hawkeyes after his team's victory at Finkbine last week.

"We'll have our hands full, and we were again shooting for a top-three finish," Hankins said. "If we play well, I think that's achievable."
