Complete Results

Crystal Spring, N.J. - Yale shot 929 over three rounds at the Ivy Championships this weekend at the Ballyowen Golf Course in northern New Jersey this weekend. The Bulldogs placed fifth overall, a disappointing result after a fourth place finish at the New England Championships last weekend in which they scored better than any other Ivy Team.

Despite steady rain and wet conditions, the 2006 men's Ivy League Golf Championships finished in exciting fashion. The Princeton Tigers claimed the 2006 Ivy Championship by just one stroke over the Columbia Lions in a thrilling 895 to 896 finish. The Tigers claimed the title for the third year in a row and the sixth time in the last seven years.

Brown's Larry Haertel shot 212 and won the individual title.

Mark Matza led all Yale golfers with 224 and finished tied for 6th place. Matza was awarded with an All-Ivy trophy at the tournament's conclusion, which capped a very successful season for the junior.

Colby Moore shot the best second round for Yale with an impressive two-under par 70. Moore finished tied for 12th with 229.

Rick Reissman (236, T21), Taylor Hakes (243, T33), and Joe Hernandez (245, 35) also competed for the Bulldogs.
