For the second consecutive season, the Harvard Crimson men’s golf team found success in New Haven, Conn., capturing the Yale Spring Opener behind the play of senior John Christensen and juniors Danny Mayer and Greg Shuman, who finished first, second, and third, respectively, in the tournament.
Battling heavy winds and a competitive field, the Crimson finished the tournament with a two-day total of 595 and 25 strokes ahead of host Yale, which finished second. Five Harvard golfers finished in the tournament’s top 25, with Christensen posting a tournament-best score of +7.
The Crimson will look to make it two in a row as Harvard competes in the Princeton Invitational this weekend (April 11-12) at the Princeton, N.J., Springdale Golf Club. Including the Crimson’s upcoming trip to New Jersey, Harvard has two tournaments remaining before the Ivy League Championships (April 24-25) at Atlantic City Country Club in Northfield, N.J.
