Seven Strokes Behind Leader
PURCHASE, N.Y. — One round into the Apr. 20-21 Century Intercollegiate, the Yale men's golf team sits in fourth place, just seven strokes behind tournament leader Princeton.
The Elis finished Saturday's round with an overall score of 303—each of the seven teams played six-person teams, counting four scores per round. Dartmouth closed at a 296, but Yale remained ahead of Ancient Eight rivals Brown, Cornell and Princeton.
On the final day of play Sunday at the Century Country Club in Purchase, N.Y., the Bulldogs will look to ascend the leaderboard and take advantage of their recent fine form: the team built on a second-place finish at the Apr. 6 Yale Spring Opener by clinching the Apr. 13-14 Princeton Invitational last weekend, making it the fourth year in the row that the Elis have won the Princeton event.
This weekend's competition in the Elis' last before the Apr. 26-28 Ivy League Championship, held this year at the Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md. Last year, the Bulldogs battled inclement weather to finish in fifth place at the Century Intercollegiate.
Golfers will tee off starting at 10:15 am tomorrow.
