Stanford sent a young team into action led by senior Steve Ziegler, junior Wilson Bowen, sophomores Andrew Yun and Steven Kearney and freshman Cameron Wilson. All-Americans David Chung (ranked #2 individually among collegians) and Sihwan Kim will be sitting this event out giving the younger Cardinals a chance to gain valuable experience. The temporary traveling coach will be 4-time All-American Rob Grube subbing for Coach Ray who remains in Palo Alto to await the imminent birth of his 2nd child.
ROUND TWO AND THREE SCORING:
Stanford finishes in a tie for 9th with an 870 total in this first tournament won by Florida with its 845 total. Andrew Yun led the way tying for 11th at 213 total with rounds of 69-68-76, 9 strokes behind tournament winner Peter Uihlein (recent US Amateur champion). Andrew's final round was marred by a 4-over 8 on the 4th hole. Next was Steve Ziegler's 216 total with rounds of 74-72-70 to tie for 24th. Cameron Wilson was at 219 to tie for 36th shooting 71-74-74, Steven Kearney at 223 tying for 51st with 73-75-75 while Illinois native Wilson Bowen shot 227 tying for 66th with 75-74-78.
No doubt the tournament provided valuable experience for frosh Wilson and for Kearney and Bowen who saw limited action last year. Missing from the squad was #2 ranked and recent US Amateur runner-up David Chung and two-time All-American senior Sihwan Kim. Final round hole-by-hole scoring can be found below:
