MARQUETTE’S LINEUP
INDIVIDUAL:
Hunter Eichhorn

Eichhorn, the top-seeded individual in the region, is making his fourth appearance in an NCAA regional.

A three-time BIG EAST Player of the Year, Eichhorn won the league’s automatic individual NCAA berth as a freshman in 2018, and earned co-medalist honors at last year’s BIG EAST Championship, while earning an at-large berth to the NCAA Kingston Springs Regional. The Carney, Michigan, native also competed with the MU team in the NCAA Austin Regional in 2019.

Eichhorn is the only MU golfer to compete in four NCAA regionals.

THE COURSE
Completed in 1940, the Ohio State Golf Club is one of the first university golf facilities outside of the East Coast. The OSU Golf Club has two courses, the Scarlet and the Gray. The Scarlet course is known as one of the top collegiate courses in the nation, having played host to 10 men’s National Championships, four women’s National Championships, several US Open qualifiers and the 1977 USGA Junior Championship. In 2005, Ohio State alumnus Jack Nicklaus oversaw a major restoration project of the Scarlet course, lengthening the course to 7,400 yards and changing the par to 71.
