Indiana golfers eager to get shot in home state

- Associated Press - Thursday, September 6, 2012

CARMEL, IND. (AP) - Bo Van Pelt should feel right at home this weekend.

He expects a large contingent of family and friends to follow him around Crooked Stick Golf Club in the BMW Championship. His nephew is a caddie at the course, and his mother lives about 15 minutes from the course.

So when Van Pelt saw Crooked Stick appear on the PGA Tour schedule, he circled the date and made sure he qualified for the tournament _ perhaps the only one he'll play in his home state.

Van Pelt isn't the only native Hoosier coming home.

Former Indiana star Jeff Overton, who grew up in Evansville, made the cut after finishing in a tie for seventh at The Deutsche Bank Championship.
