NEW YORK -- The Columbia University men's golf team looks to conclude its fall season in impressive fashion on Oct. 16-17 at The Classic at Shelter Bay, a tournament hosted by the University of Rhode Island. All eight Ivy League schools will be in attendance at the 36-hole tournament, and 16 teams will take part overall.
The inaugural 2010 field features: Army, Boston College, Brown, Bryant, Columbia, Connecticut, Cornell, Dartmouth, Hartford, Harvard, Holy Cross, Navy, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Rhode Island, and Yale.
Through the first three tournaments of the fall campaign, first-year Jordan Lee leads the team with a 72.5 stroke average. Lee has finished in the top 15 individually in each tournament, including a pair of top-10s. The Tarzana, Calif. native closed in fifth place at the Cornell Invitational then tied for seventh at the Joe Agee Invitational.
Senior Clark Granum is right on the heels of Lee for the team scoring lead, as he has averaged 73.8 strokes over nine rounds. Granum has tallied three top-20 finishes, including a 15th-place effort at the Rutgers Men's Golf Invitational.
As a team, the Lions have put together one of their most impressive fall seasons in recent memory. Columbia finished third at the Rutgers tournament and second at the Cornell Invite.
