Columbia’s five-man squad finished in third place at the Princeton Invitational, while the team’s three other golfers had solid individual performances at the NYU/Manhattanville Spring Invitational. The Lions’ five-man squad finished only two strokes behind tournament champion Yale, which won with a final score of 858. Senior Brendan Doyle tied for fifth to lead the Lions, while junior Ford Fischer finished in a tie for seventh place. Freshman Brandon Jowers had another impressive performance in the NYU/Manhattanville tournament, finishing in fourth place. Junior Stephen LaRouere finished in a tie for 15th place, while senior Sam Mysock tied for 30th.
