The tenth annual tournament of the Intercollegiate Golf Association, made up of Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia and Pennsylvania, will begin today on the course of the Garden City Golf Club, at Garden City, Long Island. The preliminary round of the team matches will be played today and the final team match, at 36 holes, tomorrow.
The University team is composed of the following members: M. McBurney '06, captain; W. F. Harrison '06, F. Ingalls 2L., P. Gilbert '08, F. W. Kemble '08, T. Briggs '09, and E. Wilder '07, substitute.
The team is seriously handicapped by the loss of H. C. Egan '05, W. E. Egan '05, and A. L. White '06, intercollegiate champion last year. The new material, however, is promising, and if the men play their best game the team should win the championship.
The contest for the individual championship, open to members and substitutes of the competing teams, will begin on Thursday with the 18 hole qualifying round, in which sixteen men will qualify. The finals, at 36 holes, will be played on Saturday.
