SPRINGFIELD, N.J. — Freshman Scott Jaster (Bryn Mawr, Pa.) wrapped up the Ivy League Men’s Golf Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club in eighth place to earn second-team All-Ivy honors as the Dartmouth Big Green finished the tournament in sixth. Columbia won the team title by a dozen strokes ahead of Yale at 41-over par, while Harvard’s Theodore Lederhausen defeated Brown’s Nelson Hargrove in a playoff for medalist honors after the two tied for the lead after 54 holes at five-over par (215).

While Jaster was the Big Green’s top golfer, junior Charlie Edler (Fair Haven, N.J.) carded the low round of the day for Dartmouth with a five-over 75. He bogeyed the first three holes before finding his groove, beginning with a birdie on the 186-yard, par-3 fourth. Edler then proceeded to make par on 11 of the final 14 holes to end the championship in 29th place with a 232 (+22).

Jaster had a volatile front nine with four bogeys, a double bogey and a birdie on the 451-yard, par-4 third hole. But beginning with the 10th, he recorded seven straight pars before taking bogeys on the final two holes to finish with a 77 (+7) on the day and a 222 (+12) for the tournament.

Freshman Jeff Lang (Lexington, Mass.) came back to the clubhouse with a six-over 76 on Sunday with a birdie and seven bogeys, completing the three rounds at 20-over par (230) in a tie for 21st. Another rookie, Sean Fahey (Villanova, Pa.) finished up one stroke behind Lang in a tie for 24th after posting a 78 (+8) in today’s round.

Rounding out the Big Green squad was sophomore Dylan Rusk (Edina, Minn.), who like Fahey carded an eight-over 78 on Sunday and tied for 32nd with a 235 (+25).

After the championship, the Ivy League announced that Sam Bernstein of Yale and Brandon Jowers of Columbia shared the Player of the Year honor while Robert Deng of Harvard earned Rookie of the Year in a vote of the league’s coaches.
