Ivy Men's Golf Fall Review

PRINCETON, N.J. -- During the men’s golf fall campaign, the Ancient Eight combined for two team titles and two team runner-up finishes, while also producing an individual medalist and two individual runners-up.  

The Bears were led by junior Kevin Li and freshman Kenneth Lee throughout the fall campaign, as the duo finished 1-2 for Brown in a trio of fall tournaments. Brown posted its low round of the fall season in the Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge, shooting 304 in the first round en route to a 10th place finish. The Bears also placed 12th at the Cornell Invitational and 14th at the Homewood Hilton Airport Invitational, hosted by Florida Gulf Coast University. In its lone match-play event thus far, Brown fell to Bryant (5-0-1), with Sasha Lobel earning a tie at the No. 3 position by shooting a team-low 71.  

Junior Joshua Suh paced the Lions in 3-of-4 fall tournaments, while carding four-straight top 25 finishes. Senior Arjuna Anday led the Lions in the other fall tournament—the season opener— tying for fifth place at the Cornell Invitational. Columbia earned three-straight top 10 team scores in the Cornell Invitational (5th), Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge (5th) and the Nick Watney Invitational (9th), before closing out the fall campaign with a 12th-place finish at the Dayton Flyer Invitational. The Lions carded their best single-round score of the fall season in the final round of the Cornell Invitational, shooting 287 to vault to fifth in the team standings.

Senior Luke Graboyes led the Big Red with a trio of top 10 finishes during the fall campaign, including a runner-up nod at the Cornell Invitational. Overall, Cornell compiled seven top 10 individual finishers during the fall season—with the honors spread among four Big Red golfers. Cornell also earned four-straight top three team scores in the Alex Lagowitz Memorial Invitational (2nd), Cornell Invitational (1st), Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge (3rd) and The Connecticut Cup (3rd) this fall, with the highlight being a four-stroke win on its home course for the Big Red’s first team title since the 2007-08 season. Cornell’s low round also came in its home invitational, where the Big Red closed the event with a final-round 285.

The trio of senior Sean Fahey, junior Ian Kelsey and sophomore John Lazor headlined the Big Green fall efforts. Each was the Dartmouth low-scorer at a fall tournament—with Kelsey claiming or sharing that honor in 3-of-4 events en route to three top 25 individual finishes. As a team, Dartmouth placed eighth at the Cornell Invitational, seventh at the Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge, 12th at the Macdonald Cup and 10th at the Camden Collegiate Invitational.

The Crimson trio of senior Robert Deng, senior Kendrick Vinar and junior Gregory Royston highlighted the fall action for Harvard. Each was the Harvard low-scorer at a fall tournament, with Deng (2) and Royston (3) posting multiple top 10 finishes. Royston currently paces the Ivy League with a 71.00 scoring average. As a team, the Crimson finished no lower than sixth this fall, while competing at The Doc Gimmler (6th), Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge (2nd), Macdonald Cup (1st) and Camden Collegiate Invitational (5th). Harvard’s team title at the Macdonald Cup was its first since it captured the Ivy League Championship last April and included the Crimson’s low round of the fall, a final round 277.  

Junior Amay Poria and sophomore Josh Goldenberg led the Quakers throughout the fall season, with one member of the duo serving as the Penn low scorer at each of its five fall events. Poria headlined the fall by earning individual medalist honors at the City Six Championship, while Goldenberg collected three top 10 finishes through five events. As a team, Penn placed seventh at the Cornell Invitational, fourth at the Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge, 13th at the Macdonald Cup, 10th at the David Toms Intercollegiate and fourth at the City Six Championship. The Quakers low round of the fall came at the Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge, where Penn tallied an opening round 286 en route to its season-best fourth-place finish.

Junior Marc Hedrick was the lone Tiger to pace the team in multiple events this fall, tallying 2-of-4 top 15 finishes for Princeton. Senior Alex Dombrowski, junior Michael Davis and junior Eric Mitchell were each among the top two Tiger finishers in 3-of-5 fall tournaments.
