Jaster Finishes Among Top 10 at Ivy Championship
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.
