NEW HAVEN, Conn. - After day one at the Macdonald Cup, the host Yale men's golf team sits in sixth place overall. St. John's leads the field at a combined even par through 18 holes. Bradley Kushner and Brandon Marick posted the Elis' low scores of the day, each shooting a 1-over 71, good for 11th overall.
Evidence of just how closely packed Saturday's field was, Yale's second best rounds of the day were 3-over 73's, a number posted by four Bulldogs: Michael Fader, Jeff Hatten, Russell Holmes, and Carson Weinand. Captain Tom McCarthy finished just behind them at +4 on the day.
Overall, Yale finished 11 strokes behind the day one leader: the Red Storm. Sacred Heart and Nova Southeastern University round out the top three, while Ancient Eight rival Harvard is tied with Binghamton for fourth.
The Elis will look to hunt down the Crimson - and the rest of the leaderboard - when action resumes Sunday in New Haven.
