Fortune: THE MONEY GAMEupdated: Mon Oct 03 2005 00:01:00

ON A HAZY AFTERNOON IN LATE August, two of the most successful moneymen of our age made their way among the steep bunkers and double-blind holes of the venerable Yale Golf Club. Their showdown wasn't much of a contest: Host David F. Swensen, who runs Yale University's $15 billion endowment, shot "somewhere in the 90s," he says. His longtime friend and rival Jack R. Meyer, manager of Harvard's $22 billion endowment, shot a 76. "Jack's a spectacular golfer," Swensen admits. "He crushed me." When it comes to running money, though, Swensen and Meyer are much more closely matched. Swensen, 51, has managed Yale's endowment for two decades and built one of the most spectacular investment records on the planet--up 16.1% a year (while the S&P 500 index gained 12.3%). "Yale has the best returns of any endowment anywhere," he is quick to tell you. Meyer, 60, can't argue with that. Since he got the job at Harvard in 1990--thanks in part to a glowing recommendation from Swensen--he has trailed his Connecticut riva
