GREENWICH, Conn. – Harvard men's golf won its second-straight Ivy League Championship Sunday afternoon, defeating the field by 15 strokes at The Stanwich Club's 7,133-yard, par-72 course. It marked the first time in program history that the Crimson captured back-to-back league titles, and the first time it happened in the Ancient Eight since Columbia won three-straight Ivy League titles from 2008-10.
Harvard remained in control throughout the championship, leading at the end of each day. The title is the fourth Ancient Eight crown in Crimson history.
The Crimson improved each day of the championship to finish 10-over par (293-292-289—874), finishing with a one-over round on day three.
The Harvard scoring four each earned All-Ivy nods, with individual runner-up senior Daniel de la Garza (+1, 72-72-73—217) and junior Greg Royston (+2, 73-75-70—218) claiming first team honors.
Senior Robert Deng carded a 73 on day three of the event, finishing in a tie for sixth with a score of plus-four (75-72-73—220). Classmate Kendrick Vinar posted a plus-two on day three, ranking 10th overall (+7, 76-73-74—223).
Harvard earns the league's automatic berth to the NCAA Championship and will compete in the NCAA Regionals from May 15-17.
