Mississippi is quickly becoming a golf destination, especially near the coastline around Biloxi. Where a recent visit found several great golf courses.

The state of Mississippi might not be looked upon like some of the other southern states in terms of a golf destination, but their are plenty of great golf courses to play and some nice hotels to stay at while playing. With all of the hotel casino’s in the Biloxi area, there is plenty of action on and off the golf course.

The Illinois Golf Team at Olympia Fields

ILLINOIS has surged to the lead at the Big Ten Golf Championships, what was a four shot lead over Iowa late in round two is now 32 shots after round three.

Freshman Nick Hardy went out and set the pace with a 4 under par 68.

“We didn’t have our best at the end round two,” said Illinois coach mike Small. “But when our first guy out Nick Hardy goes out and shoots 68 in these conditions and on this golf course it sends a message.”

Thomas Detry had a -1 (71), Charlie Danielson carded and even par 72, Senior Brian Campbell responded from a poor second round of 78, with a 3 under par 69. Dylan Meyer shot 75 and is now +2 for the championship. The battle now seems to be for second place, Illinois is looking to win it’s sixth Big Ten Title in seven years.
