The Cornell golf team had the pleasure of spending their weekend the way many could only dream of. On this bamly weekend, the Big Red got to spend their time on the course, free of guilt unlike most aficionados.

The golfers were productive on the links, finishing up the annual Cornell/Colgate tournament. The Cornell A team concluded the two-day event at the Seven Oaks Golf Course tied for 22nd. The B team fought for an impressive ninth place on the Colgate links.

The tournament started on Saturday on Ithaca’s Robert Trent Jones course after a rain delay. After the weather cleared, Cornell’s A team got off to an OK start, shooting a first round 334.

Binghamton got off to a good start Saturday and eventually won the title with a two-day 611. Binghamton’s Adam Fuchs captured the individual crown with a two-under-par 142.

David Nyak’s 157 was Cornell’s top finisher, tying for 22nd place. He was followed by Conor Brownell whose 158 grouped him with the other 26th place golfers.

The golf team has the pleasure of practicing on the greens during the week, a treat envied by many. Then the Big Red travels to Pennsylvania next weekend to battle Ivy foes in the Bucknell Invitational.
