NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Penn men's golf team struggled at the Macdonald Cup this weekend, shooting 292-303--595 and tying for 11th in a 13-team field at the Golf Course at Yale. The tournament was originally scheduled to be a 54-hole event but was shortened to 36 holes after Saturday's afternoon round was cancelled due to inclement weather.

The Quakers tied Central Connecticut, with only Fordham behind the pair. Host Yale won the tournament, shooting 280-285--565 to finish five shots ahead of second-place Princeton. Among the other Ivy schools, Dartmouth was third (573), Harvard tied for fifth (583), and Columbia tied for eighth (587).

Individually, P.J. Fielding was Penn's low scorer as he shot 68-75--143 and tied for ninth in the 75-player field. Senior Scotty Williams tied for 23rd overall (72-74--146), while Colin St. Maxens tied for 65th (77-77--154) and Marco Fortades tied for 68th (80-75--155). Penn was not helped when its low scorer from the first two tournaments this year, Max Marsico, was disqualified after a first-round 79. Freshman Ben Cooley played as an individual and shot 75-77--152 to tie for 56th.

Dartmouth's Peter Williamson won medalist honors at Yale, carding 65-71--136 (-4) to defeat Yale's Sam Bernstein by a stroke.

Penn returns to action this weekend with the 36-hole Big Five Classic, which will be hosted by Temple and held at Plymouth Country Club in Plymouth Meeting, Pa.
