Kevin Rhoads, who serves as both the men's and woman's golf coach at Harvard, guided both his teams to Ivy League Championships this year.
In its final tune-up before the Ivy League Championship in two weeks, the Harvard men’s golf team made the trek to Princeton, N.J., to take part in the Princeton Invitational. After two rounds of play Saturday and Sunday, the Crimson emerged from the pack of 15 schools with a second-place finish.
Fresh off a spring break trip to Georgia and South Carolina, the Harvard men’s golf team headed back south this weekend, participating in the Furman Intercollegiate in Greenville, S.C. After 72 holes of play over two days, the Crimson came away with a second-place finish.
At the end of three full days of play, the Crimson came away placing 13th out of 15 participants.
Playing 36 holes over two days, the Crimson shot seven-over-par at the Quechee Club Collegiate Challenge, finishing one stroke behind Rhode Island and five behind the Big Green, who took home first.
The newest members of the Harvard men’s golf team made a name for themselves in the first contest of the 2015 campaign as freshmen Aurian Capart and Seiya Liu tied captain Rohan Ramnath as the top finishers for the Crimson.
Now in his 11th season of coaching the Harvard women’s golf team and his third season with the men's team, Kevin Rhoads has accomplished far more with both programs than his predecessors.
The Harvard men and women’s golf teams will be travelling to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania for the Ivy League Golf Championship this weekend. Having performed well in their recent tournaments these past few weeks, both squads are serious contenders for the championship.
