Holy Cross will be a slight underdog when it meets the Crimson golfers today at the Belmont Country Club. The match is the first between Harvard and the Crusaders in several years.
Captain Bob Matson will too off as number one man, following a recent sharpening of his game. Hugh Nawn, who has also cut a few strokes from his scores, will be number two, followed by Doug Wilde, Jack Denton, Paul Weissman, and Dave Gorman. Herb Mee rejoins the team for the Holy Cross match, after being out of action with a blister for several weeks.
The freshman golfers open their season today against the varsity of Lowell Textile Institute. Dan Haskins, whose 81 has led the qualifiers so far, will lead off, with Dave Hedberg, Bill Rydell, George Wheeling, Marvin Schwalb, and Jack Dennis rounding out the squad. Competition for the freshman team will continue through Thursday.
