PRINCETON, N.J. -- The 2015 men's golf season will ramp up this weekend, with five Ivy squads taking action as part of the Ivy League's 60th season.
Cornell kicked things off last week on a high note, as the Big Red took second overall at the Colgate Invitational. Sophomore Mike Graboyes beat out his brother Luke Graboyes and another competitor on the second hole of the playoff to take the individual crown. The brothers each finished six under on the tournament, as the Big Red started the 2015 fall campaign with its highest team tournament finish since 2007.
This weekend will see Columbia, Harvard and Yale at the St. John's Invitational starting on Saturday. The Lions, 2014 Ivy League champions, took fourth in the championship last season and have four events to look forward to this fall. The Crimson finished third last year and four events this fall as well. The Bulldogs were fifth place finishers last season and will take part in six tournaments during the autumn slate.
Also in action this weekend will be Princeton, led by 2015 Ivy League Individual champion Quinn Prchal. The Tigers fell to Penn on the last hole to take second in the team championship race last year. Princeton sees action five times this fall.
Brown, Dartmouth and defending Ivy League champion Penn will start their respective seasons next week, as the Bears and Quakers join Cornell and Princeton at the Cornell Invitational, while the Big Green head to Notre Dame.
