Team Faced Difficult Second Round

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. – After a tough second day's play, the Yale men's golf team has finished the Oct. 8-9 Big Five Invitational in a tie for 15th place, sharing the spot with Ancient Eight rival Cornell.

Sunday saw players shoot through a tough second round, with the Bulldogs finishing with an overall score of 604, 26 strokes behind tournament winner Dartmouth. Players had to contend with the tricky Plymouth Country Club golf course in Plymouth Meeting, Pa., and they certainly found the par 70 course a difficult one to maneuver around.

Leading the way for the Elis was sophomore Sam Bernstein, who fired a second round 74 (+4) to finish at +7 for the tournament, a score that put him in a tie for 21st place. Behind him was freshman William Davenport, who shot a respectable +9 overall to finish in a tie for 31st place.

Junior Bradley Kushner and senior captain Jeffrey Hatten finished back in a tie for 56th and tie for 75th spot, respectively, reflecting the difficulty of the course.
