The Ivy League Championship golf tournaments will be held Friday through Sunday for the league's men's and women's teams, sending the eight men's program's south to Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md., and the seven women's programs north to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

The men's tournament moves from the Galloway National Golf Club in Absecon, N.J., where it had been played the last two years and four of the last six. The women's event was at Seaview Country Club in Galloway, N.J. last year, having been played in the Atlantic City area the last two years and four of the last five.

Men | Live Scoring
First tee times: Friday 8 a.m., Saturday 12:30 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m.
Last year: Princeton placed fifth at the Ivy League Championship with 13 shots separating the top five teams. Penn defeated Dartmouth in a playoff, with Columbia three shots back, Harvard five and Princeton 13. Only two of Princeton's five players from that tournament are back this year, including senior Bernie D'Amato (T11th last season) and junior Greg Jarmas (10th).

At the course: Princeton played in a Yale-hosted tournament at Caves Valley in 2010. Only Bernie D'Amato, who tied for sixth overall at +9, is a current Tiger from that team.

This season: Princeton has posted top-five finishes in all three events this season, and Tiger golfers have won two individual titles. Bernie D'Amato won medalist honors at the Yale Spring Opener on April 6, and Quinn Prchal shared the individual title last weekend at the Century Intercollegiate.

Against the Ivies: Princeton has finished ahead of every Ivy in a stroke-play tournament at some point during the 2012-13 season. The Tigers are a combined 17-0 against Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard and Penn, but Dartmouth and Yale have given the Tigers the most trouble. Princeton split its finishes with Dartmouth in two fall tournaments and has finished ahead of the Big Green in two of the three tournaments this spring, with last weekend's Century Intercollegiate as the exception. Yale has finished ahead of Princeton in all three spring tournaments they have shared, though the Tigers finished ahead of the Bulldogs in the Philadelphia Big 5 tournament in the fall.

Women | Live Scoring
First tee times: Friday 11:30 a.m., Saturday 11:30 a.m., Sunday 8 a.m.
Last year: Princeton placed sixth at the Ivy meet last season, won by Harvard with a six-shot cushion over Penn. Only two of the five Tigers who played in the Ivy meet are on the current team, including junior Kelly Shon (seventh overall last season) and sophomore Mary Funk (30th).

At the course: Princeton has not played a tournament at the Trump National course.

This season: Princeton has posted top-five finishes in all three events this spring, finishing second of 16 at the Low Country Intercollegiate, winning a dual against Penn and placing fifth of 14 at the UNCW Seahawk Classic.

Against the Ivies: Princeton has finished ahead of every Ivy except for Harvard during the 2012-13 season, including a 7-0 record against Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth and Penn. Princeton has finished ahead of Yale two out of three times the teams have shared a course in 2012-13, with the fall-opening Yale-hosted event as the exception. Harvard has placed ahead of Princeton at both of their meetings this season, with both coming in the fall at tournaments hosted by Yale and Penn State. In the spring, Princeton is 4-0 against Ivies, finishing ahead of Dartmouth and Brown at the Low Country Intercollegiate in South Carolina and winning a dual against Penn on March 30.
