PRINCETON, N.J. -
A trip to Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y. will open the season for the Harvard men's golf team, which will play a one-round event Sunday against Princeton and Yale as the clubs renew the HYP rivalry.

The Sebonack course measures as much as 7,481 yards from the black tees and is a par-72.

Yale was the runner-up to Columbia at last year's Ivy League Championship, while Harvard finished fifth and Princeton seventh. The Bulldogs return four of their five from the Ivy meet a year ago, including senior Tom McCarthy, who finished two shots out of a playoff for individual medalist honors. Harvard returns just its top two finishers, Antonio Grillo and Mark Pollak, each of whom placed in the top 10 at the Ivy meet.

Princeton brings back its four scorers from the Ivy event, including sophomore Bernie D'Amato who tied for fourth among his league peers last spring. Also back from that contingent are senior Eric Salazar, who was a 2009 All-Ivy honoree, and juniors Patrick Wasserman and Chase Lovett-Woodsum. The Tigers bring aboard two freshmen this year, Greg Jarmas and Taylor Peck, to join five returners.
