Stanford finishes tied for 3rd at Isleworth Collegiate in Florida

Stanford finishes tied for 3rd against one of the strongest fields in college golf in the Isleworth Collegiate, played at the home of Tiger Woods and many other PGA professionals, held Oct 24-26 in Windermere, Florida.  One of the highlights of this trip was once again enjoying the hospitality and time with Tiger Woods --- on his blog after the event Tiger shared "I recently hosted the Stanford men's golf team for a barbecue at my house. They were in town to play in the Isleworth Invitational, and it's become an annual event. It's great to have the guys around and let them basically ask questions. It's a lot of fun from both sides."  

See details below in the Round 3 Summary.

Stanford sent a team with freshmen Cameron Wilson and Shane Lebow, sophomore Andrew Yun and two seniors Steve Ziegler and Sihwan Kim.  #1 player David Chung is off to Buenos Aires for the World Amateur and unavailable this week.  This excellent tournament website tracks the tournament well.  Real-time scoring by GolfStat was available as well.
