Golf Teams to Wrap Fall Tournaments This Weekend
Both Princeton golf teams will cap their fall seasons this weekend, with the men hosting the Ivy Tournament at the TPC at Jasna Polana in Princeton and the women visiting Lehigh.
The men's tournament will be a match-play format featuring seven of the eight Ivy League schools. Five players from each of two teams will compete in match-play format, and the team that wins at least three of those matches will move on in a three-round bracket. All teams will play three matches, regardless of wins or losses.
To round out the bracket, the eighth team will be a composite of individuals from the participating seven Ivies. The action will begin at Jasna Polana at 8 a.m. Saturday, and spectators are welcome to attend. The schedule of play is below.
Match 1: (1) Yale vs. (8) Composite Team, 8 a.m., hole 1
Match 2: (4) Dartmouth vs. (5) Penn, 8 a.m., hole 10

Seeds were determined based on the most recent Golfstat team rankings, which can be found here. It is the first time Princeton has played an official event at the TPC at Jasna Polana, a par-72, 7,098-yard course that opened in 1998.
The women's tournament at Lehigh will feature one round each day Saturday and Sunday at Saucon Valley Country Club. Princeton will take on host Lehigh, Georgetown, Rutgers, St. John's, Seton ahll, Siena and Yale.
It will be Princeton's second Lehigh-hosted event in program history. In September 2005, Alexis Etow '07 won medalist honors in the Lehigh Fall Invitational at Wedgewood Golf Course in Coopersburg, Pa. The Tigers entered that event on an individual basis, splitting the team between two tournaments.
