Women’s Golf to Compete at Yale

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's golf team returns to action this weekend at Yale's Women's Intercollegiate Tournament in New Haven, Conn. The tournament will run Friday through Sunday, the players hitting one round per day. The Crimson has competed at this tournament each of the last three seasons, taking second in 2014, sixth in 2015 and fourth in 2016. 

Last Time Out
The Harvard women's golf team posted another successful weekend, placing first among five Ivy League competitors and second overall at the Princeton Invitational. Harvard completed three rounds with a score of 919, plus 55. Anna Zhou again lead the Crimson with her second top 10 finish of the season, tying for sixth overall (76-75-75, +10). Freshman Belinda Hu was also a strong performer for the Crimson, notching a top 20 finish (79-77-75, +15). 

Scouting Harvard
Harvard will field the same lineup as last week, consisting of Anna Zhou, Belinda Hu, Michelle Xie, Lita Guo and Jessica Luo. The Crimson were again allowed an individual competitor, a slot that will be filled by Ji Hae Lee

The Course
The Course at Yale is widely regarded as one of the top college courses in the country. Completed in 1926, the course sits on a rocky, wooded landscape and cost over $400,000, making it the most expensive course built at the time. Yale has some of the most extreme holes, including the infamous 9th, a 235-yard Biarritz over water to a green bisected by a six-foot-deep swale.

What's Next?
The Harvard women's golf team will close out the fall season on Oct. 21 and 22 at the Lady Blue Hen Invitational hosted by Delaware.
