Final Results: 
“The guys came out of hibernation today,” head coach Conrad Ray remarked after the event. “We were excited about their rounds and they put the pedal down after a very good start. It was fun to get some momentum going and to post a number for Arizona State to look at. There is a lot of work ahead of us, but a very positive move by a young team today.”

LA QUINTA, Calif. – Maverick McNealy played like a man on a mission.

That mission Wednesday was to help the Stanford men’s golf team climb from 10th place after the opening round of The Prestige at PGA West into contention for its second straight win at the event. Stanford was seventh through two rounds of the three-day, 54-hole showdown.

McNealy used nine birdies to post a remarkable 8-under 64 for his third medalist honor on the season. 

Editor's Note --- The 3rd win this season leaves Maverick only behind two Stanford players who have won more events in a season, Tiger Woods with 8 in 1995-96 and Patrick Rodgers with 6 last year.  Only eight players in Stanford history have recorded a round lower than McNealy’s 64.

With his victory, McNealy joins Tiger Woods (3 in 1994-95 & 8 in 1995-96), Patrick Rodgers (6 in 2013-14), Cameron Wilson (3 in 2013-14), Zack Miller (3 in 2006-07) and Joel Kribel (3 in 1996-97) as the only Stanford players to compile at least three victories in a season.  See Stanford record holders.

“My game has felt really solid for a while, but I really started to light it up coming down the stretch of our events, especially the last six holes at our last tournament in Hawaii,” McNealy said. “I tried to get in that mindset from the get-go today, and played possibly the best round of golf in my life. I had two bad tee balls, both of which I couldn’t swing at because I was next to a tree. But I absolutely stuffed irons all day and even hit the pin from 157 yards out on the ninth. I was happy with how I kept the pedal down during the whole round.”

McNealy followed an opening-round birdie with a bogey on the second hole. He proceeded to birdie every other hole from four to 14, and then rattled off birdies on 15 and 16. McNealy (68-69-64) was 15-under overall.

“But what I’m most proud of from today is how our team played,” McNealy continued. “We fed off each others’ momentum today. It got me going on eight to hear that Viraat (Badhwar) was 5-under and (David) Boote was 4-under. I’m really happy for the guys. We have been putting in great work and it’s starting to pay off. We’re going to take this momentum into our next event.”

While the Cardinal briefly held the lead with a tournament-best 20-under 268, Arizona State used a late surge to take the tournament title. The Sun Devils were 31-under while Stanford (288-281-268) finished at 27-under.

Stanford’s 20-under tied the best single round in program history. In 2006, the Cardinal rallied for a 20-under at the CordeValle Classic.

It was the third straight top-10 finish for the Cardinal, which won The Prestige last season. Even more, McNealy was the program’s second straight medalist at the event, following the path blazed by Patrick Rodgers’ 2014 victory.

McNealy was four shots better than second-place Xander Schauffele (San Diego State) and Jon Rahm (Arizona State), who both finished at 11-under.

Including McNealy, four Cardinal finished its final rounds in the red. Viraat Badhwar tied for 19th and had a brilliant 6-under 66. Badhwar went 5-under on the front and was 6-under through 11. He neutralized a bogey on 12 with a birdie on the par-4 13th.

David Boote, who tied for 27th, collected eight birdies with three bogeys for his 5-under performance. Franklin Huang tied for 21st following his 1-under finale and Jeffrey Swegle had an even-par kind of day.

Individuals Patrick Grimes (t-56th), Dominick Francks (t-63rd) and Bradley Knox (t-77th) each went 2-over to conclude the event.

The Cardinal will now dust off its passports and head to the Querencia Cabo Collegiate (March 1-3) in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.

Round 2 Results:
Stanford moved up three places to 7th with its 7-under par 281 team total, 16 strokes behind the leading USC team.  The 7-under round was the 4th best of the day in which ASU was 14-under par and OSU was 13 under.

Maverick McNealy is tied for 3rd overall, 1 stroke behind the two individual leaders after his 3-under 69 (68-69 137 T3).  Freshman Franklin Huang fired a sparkling 68 (74-68 142 T20) in a round that included 4 birdies leading to a 32 on his back nine. Viraat Badhwar had another 73 (73-73 146 T42), David Boote bounced back with a 71 (76-71 147 T47) and freshman Jeff Swegle had a 77 (73-77 150 T59).

Round 2 Results
Weather conditions were favorable for scoring in round 2 with light winds opening the door for low rounds.  But Stanford was unable to make a move in round two, dropping from 4th to 8th place, as the top 7 teams all fired very low team totals ranging from 9 under par to 19 under par while Stanford was only 3-under on the day).  The Pac 12 has 5 teams in the top 8 led by Washington at 30-under par and USC at 27 under par, while the Cardinal sits at 13 under par.

Maverick McNeal again led the way in round 2 and is tied for 7th overall after a 3-under 69 (67-69 136 T7) followed by David Boote's 70 (72-70 142 T39), Viraat Badhwar's 72 (69-72 141 T24), Dominick Francks' 74 (80-74 154 T98) and Jeff Swegle's 76 (70-76 146 T66).  Patrick Grimes had a 72 (75-72 147 T71) playing as an individual.

The Cardinal compete in the US Collegiate tourney in Georgia

The young 4th ranked Cardinal team travels to Alpharetta, Georgia outside of Atlanta to compete in the US Collegiate event against another strong field including traditional powers Texas, Georgia Tech (the host team) and Oklahoma State.  The field includes two other Pac-12 teams, UCLA and Washington.

Stanford sent out all underclassmen again including freshman Franklin Huang who is playing in his first college event after firing qualifying rounds of 64 and 67.  Maverick McNealy, David Boote, Viraat Badhwar (coming off his course record 11-under par 59 at Stanford the previous week) and Jim Liu complete the team.

Final Team Standings

Stanford (283-293-300) was 12-over as a team overall after entering Sunday’s round at even-par. The men’s golf team looks to regroup and rebound at the Gifford Collegiate (Nov. 3-4) held at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, Calif.

Texas (-21) outlasted Virginia (-20) for the team title on The Golf Club of Georgia’s par-72 layout.

“We struggled all the way around today after a slow start on the first few holes,” said Conrad Ray, Stanford’s Knowles Family Director of Men’s Golf. “We have a young team this season, and with that typically comes more ups and downs. It was a great learning experience the last few days for us, and we will be a better team when we tee it up at CordeValle.”

McNealy (66-74-73) was the team’s highest individual finisher, tying for 13th at 3-under. McNealy was joined in the top-25 by Viraat Badhwar (73-70-74), who was 25th at 1-over.

Franklin Huang (73-74-75) tied for 54th, David Boote (71-75-80) tied for 65th and Jim Liu (79-77-78) tied for 76th.

Stanford struggled in round  two with a team total of 5 over 293 which was only the day's 12th best in the field of 15, leaving the team tied for 7th place but still 11 strokes behind the leader Texas.  The field is bunched tightly at the top so a good third round can change final results significantly.

Viraat Badhwar (73-70 143 T19) led the way with a 2-under 70 and the four other Stanford players all were over par.  Maverick (66-74 140 T7) and freshman Franklin Huang (73-74 147 T42) had 74s, David Boote (71-75 146 T37) a 75 and Jim Liu (79-77 156 T76) continue to struggle with a 77.

Cardinal finishes 4th and McNealy 1st again at famed Olympia Fields in Chicago against a strong field

The Illini Invitational welcomed Stanford and a top field to famed Olympia Fields in Chicago, site of several major championships.

Stanford comes into the Illini Invitational off a 15-stroke win at the SW Intercollegiate hosted by USC.  The same 5 players, Maverick McNealy, Jim Liu, Viraat Badhwar, Patrick Grimes and Dominic Francks who competed recently are representing the Cardinal.

The field is strong with 8 of the top 20 teams entered including #1 Alabama, #3 Stanford, #7 Illinois, #13 Texas, #18 Texas A & M and #19 Arkansas.

Final Results (provided by
Maverick McNealy picked up his second win in as many outings Sunday by claiming top honors at the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational.

McNealy, who collected the first win of his collegiate career earlier this week at the Southwestern Intercollegiate, fired three consecutive rounds of 71 to finish 3-over at the par-70 Olympia Fields Country Club. He shared the top billing with host Illinois’ Dylan Meyer.

Stanford’s Cameron Wilson also shared medalist honors at the same tournament in 2013 with Robby Shelton of Alabama.

Stanford (294-299-289) was fourth overall among the 15-team field at 42-over. Illinois (+21), Florida State (+32) and Baylor (+36) claimed the top three spots.

“I’m happy with how the guys hung in there, but we’ve got much to work on,” said Conrad Ray, Stanford’s Knowles Family Director of Men’s Golf. “It’s early in the year, so it was good for us to play a challenging course to see what we have team-wise.

“Maverick has been very solid these last two weeks, and two medals in a few strong fields is a great start to his year with added confidence. Jim Liu has had two great weeks, too. It’s good to see him playing better and on the right track.”

Liu’s even-par third round was the best score of any Cardinal during the 56-hole event. He was 4-under on the front but had four bogeys on the back, eventually finishing 12th overall at 8-over.

Patrick Grimes (+11) squeezed into the top-20, taking 19th with rounds of 74-73-74.

Viraat Badhwar (+20) tied for 54th and Dominick Francks (+31) tied for 71st.

“It was a really hard day to play,” CU head coach Roy Edwards said.  “The golf course is really long and tough to begin with, and they're using the same hole locations they used for the U.S. Open, and those are never easy.  Plus it played longer because it was cold (low 50s) with constant rainfall.  It made it tough for everyone to play; there wasn’t a single hole out here today where par wasn’t a good score.”

Coming off an individual win last week, Maverick McNealy led the way with a 1 over 71, Jim Liu finished with a very steady 72, Patrick Grimes shot 74, Viraat Badhwar shot a 77 (despite two triple bogies) and Dominick Francks an 84.  Scorecards for each player are shown below:
