Victory By Two Strokes
PRINCETON, N.J. — After the stunning final round on Sunday, the Yale men's golf team emerged victorious at the Apr. 13-14 Princeton Invitational for the fourth year in a row.
A final round 295 let the Elis ascend up the leaderboard—from their second-place close on Saturday—to take home the title, with an +16 overall, two strokes ahead of second-place Princeton, which finished at +18.
In claiming victory through 54 holes here at the Springdale Golf Club in Princeton, N.J., the Bulldogs won their fourth Princeton Invitational title in a row. Last year they won in a nail-biting finish, one stroke clear of Georgetown, who finished in second.
Leading the way this year for the Bulldogs was senior captain Bradley Kushner, who shot an -2 overall to finish in third place overall. He was just two strokes short of tournament leaders, Brandon Matthews and Matthew Teesdale from Temple.
The Princeton Invitational featured a 14-team field including all seven other Ivy League teams. Golfers played through the par-71 Springdale course, measuring 6,390 yards.
Next up for the Elis will be the Apr. 20-21 Century Intercollegiate, held this year at the Century Country Club in Purchase, N.Y. That will the Bulldogs' last opportunity to tune up before the season-culminating Ivy League Championship, held on Apr. 26-28 at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md.
