Please note that on December 22nd, 2018, we upgraded our site and unfortunately were not able to bring the user ids and passwords from the old site.  So if you were a previous member of MBGT, unfortunately you must re-register on this site.  Your old user id and password will not work.  When you re-register, please use your user id (display name) from the old MBGT site. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here – https://www.a2hosting.com/blog/windows-service-update/).  As part of the recovery process, they had to perform a system restoration which has caused us to lose about 1 week of posts (plus the week we were offline so that is why recent posts are saying 2 weeks old).  We are still trying to get back the archive site; however, that is looking doubtful at this point in time as the software had some vulnerabilities and may not be permitted to be turned back on even if they can recover the data.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Update – May 31, 2019

We are happy to announce that almost all functionality has been restored and we have migrated to a new platform which will also speed up the site (something that has been asked for).  Unfortunately, we have not yet found a way to securely host the forum archive, so it remains offline for now.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

Go Illini!

Thanks Art.

I'll keep an eye out for Feagles.

Wobdering if Mike Small is still Illini coach.

He plays in some PGA events.

Mike Small is still the coach at Illinois and has done a tremendous job.

Illinois men’s golf head coach Mike Small was honored with Big Ten Golf Coach of the Year award on May 2 after the team won its fifth consecutive Big Ten Championship.

This is the 11th time Small has been named Big Ten Coach of the Year and it’s his fifth in a row. This season, he led the young Illini team to their 10th Big Ten Championship in 11 years.

Impressive record for Small. Do you know which PGA Tour players has been coached by him?

Steve Stricker and Mike Small were team mates at Illinois.

Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry are on the European Tour and are the most successful.

On the PGA or Web.com tours
