Men's Golf to Open Fall Season at St. John's Tournament
Princeton will make its familiar trip to Bethpage State Park on Long Island for the St. John's-hosted Doc Gimmler tournament, formerly known as the McLaughlin Invitational.
The Tigers first competed in the event in 1994 and have played in it a total of 13 times, including each of the last seven years. Princeton's highest finishes came in 2002 and 2010, when the Tigers finished second.
Princeton lost just one senior, Bernie D'Amato '13, from last year's Ivy League Championship team, and add two freshmen in Jason Chen and Alex Dombrowski for the 2013-14 campaign.
Along with Princeton, St. John's will welcome Army, Columbia, Florida Southern, Harvard, IUPUI, Johnson & Wales, Loyola Marymount, Marquette, Navy, Seton Hall, Temple and Yale to the event.
The tournament will be played in the Red Course, which is a par 72 with a yardage of 7,014. The park's Black Course hosted the U.S. Open in 2002 and 2009. The teams will play 36 holes Saturday and 18 Sunday, with Princeton starting Saturday at 7:15 a.m. on the 10th hole.
