Golfers Fold at ECACs; Fitzgibbons' 73 Excels

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Crimson golfers registered only one sub-80 round yesterday at the toesselated Hanover Country Club in Hanover, N.H., to finish a dismal fifth in the ECAC qualifying tournament, an event that the linksters won last year.

Only the top two qualifiers are invited to the ECAC tournament, so the Harvard squad will be in Cambridge when the premier event of the fall golf season is played at the Seven Oaks Golf Club in Colgate, N.Y., next weekend.

Fitzgibbons birdied the last hole, but Dartmouth's Joe Henley closed out with an eagle to take medalist honors with a 72. Fitzgibbons hit 14 greens in regulation, his only faux pas coming on the twelfth green, which he four-putted. anything close to their mid-season form, as

The rest of the linksters never displayed anything close to their midseason form, as Alex Vik carded an 80 and Glenn Alexander and 84. Chris Ball and George Arnold both shot 85, as the former took harrowing penstrokes on the par-five fifteenth and the latter flailed to an 11 on the eleventh.
