After not being able to travel with the team in Harvard’s last tournament, sophomore Grant Fairbairn led the way for Harvard in his season debut.

With a third of the roster sidelined in total, the Crimson tripped to Farmingdale, New York, and teed off at the annual Doc Gimmler tournament. Able to field just four players instead of the typical five, the team would limp to a 10th-place finish in its first competitive tournament this year.
