Men's Golf in Lead After Day One of Ivy League Championships

GREENWICH, Conn. - On an overcast day that began with an hour-long weather delay, Harvard men's golf took a four-stroke lead on day one of the 2017 Ivy League Men's Golf Championship.

Cornell sits second overall at plus-nine, while Yale is one stroke behind the Big Red at 298.
