GALLOWAY, N.J. --  After shooting an opening round 306, Yale leads the 2011 Ivy League men's golf Championship, which got underway on a cool but clear Friday morning at the Galloway National Golf Club. Penn is just two shots back (308), followed by Princeton (310). Dartmouth junior Peter Williamson caught fire for most of the back-nine to grab the 18-hole individual lead with a two-under par 69. He leads the 40-player field by two strokes.

Williamson played the front nine at even par and then birdied 11, 12, 14 and 15 to get to four-under par, but a double on the 18th moved the 2009 Ivy League medalist to two-under on the day.  His 67 marked the third-lowest Ivy League Championship round at Galloway, where seven Ivy League Championship rounds have now been played. Williamson led the field with five birdies.

Princeton senior Eric Salazar shot a one-over par 72 to place second after one round of play. Salazar went out in 35, including a bogey and a birdie, and came in with an eventful 37 that included two bogeys, a double and three birdies.

There is a five-way tie on the individual leader board for third place that involves Brendan Doyle of Columbia, Princeton's Evan Harmeling, the Penn duo of Max Marsico and 2010 Champion Scott Williams as well as Michael Amato of Brown. Each player shot a three-over par 74 on the first day of play.

Also of note, Cornell's John Dean registered the first birdie of the 2011 Championship when he carded a three at the par-4 third hole.

The second round of play is slated to begin at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow, April 22. The 2011 Championship concludes on Easter Sunday, starting at 7:30 a.m.
