This week the No. 14 Stanford men’s golf team co-hosted, with UC-Davis, 15 teams at the Prestige at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif.
Sitting in seventh after the first round, the Card moved up two spots to finish the tournament in fifth place with a score of 860, falling to No. 4 Washington and No. 8 USC, who tied for first with 851.
Individually, the Card had a stellar showing from its lineup with three golfers finishing in the top 20 despite windy conditions.
Senior Andrew Yun and junior Cameron Wilson tied for seventh place. Yun’s three-under-par 68 bumped Stanford up the two spots in the leader board after the second round.
“The conditions were tough,” Yun told GoStanford.com. “I practiced hitting some low shots, keeping it underneath the wind and trying to manage my game as best as I can. Luckily I executed all of the shots I wanted to hit and kept it in play, which was really key.”
Sophomore Patrick Rodgers finished in fifteenth, senior Steven Kearney in 51st and freshman David Boote in 65th.
Stanford next hits the course on March 8 in the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters.
