NEW HAVEN, Conn. – After taking 16th at the JMU Invitational over spring break, the Bulldogs will look to bounce back this weekend at the Hoya Invitational. The eighth annual Hoya Invitational will be held on Mar. 29-30, with 36 holes on Monday and 18 on Tuesday. The 17-team field will play at The Members Club at Four Streams.
The Four Streams course was designed by PGA Tour veteran Nick Price and golf architect Steve Smyers. Smyers has designed numerous courses, including Isleworth Country Club, home to a number of the world’s top players such as Tiger Woods. Four Streams is located within a parkland setting of dramatic terrain and natural features. It was the 1999 site of the PGA Toyota Challenge and Mid Atlantic Section and the 2003 Mason Dixon Challenge Match and the USGA Amateur Qualifier.
The Bulldogs are coming off a tough weekend at the JMU/Eagle Landing Invitational. The Bulldogs finished 16th out of the 17 teams in attendance and for two days had at least three scores in the 80s. The good news was that the Bulldogs improved over each round. There team scores dropped from 326 to 314 to 307 for a final score of 947. Yale’s best rounds were shot by juniors Cassie Boles and Harriet Owers-Bradley. Each golfer shot a total of 234. Boles was Yale’s only player who kept rounds over 80 off her card all weekend.
