Columbia claimed the Ivy League title for the first time since 2010 with a 41-over 881 showing at the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J.

Brandon Jowers, Harrison Shih and Tharusyan Pillay all placed in the top 10 for Columbia, which beat out runner-up Yale by 12 strokes.

Harvard placed third at 55 over, Princeton took fourth at 65 over and Brown rounded out the top five at 68 over.

Harvard's Theodore Lederhausen took medalist honors after beating out Brown's Nelson Hargrove in a sudden-death playoff. Lederhausen made a par on the par-4 first hole, whole Hargrove shot a bogey. Lederhausen's final-round 71 helped propel him from a tie for fourth to a tie for first after the tournament's 54 holes concluded.
