A look ahead --- update on the Incoming Freshmen: Rodgers, Grimes & Puyat

Patrick Rodgers
Here's a review of Stanford's three incoming freshman for the 2011-12 season.  The three are Patrick Rodgers of Indiana, Patrick Grimes of Northern California and Marcel Puyat of Southern California (by way of the Philipines).

In recent months, Patrick Rodgers, in particular, has been invited to participate in some high level amateur events and his results have been very strong up against excellent amateur and collegiate competition.  Patrick finished 2nd, 1 shot behind the winner, at 11-under par in the Terra Cotta Invitational in Naples, Florida with rounds of 67-70-67 while Marcel finished tied for 11th with rounds of 70-73-71.  In the Azalea Invitational in Georgia, March 24-27,  Patrick finished third with rounds of 68-69-67-67--271 against another strong field.  In the Jones Cup Invitational, February 4-6, Patrick finished tied for 3rd, one shot behind the leaders, on rounds of 73-71-74 beating notables such as Scott Langley, Patrick Reed, Bobby Wyatt and Peter Uihlein among others.

Patrick Rodgers is rising on the World Amateur Rankings, which weights results over the previous 12 months, as he is now ranked 63rd in the world --- ahead of him are current Stanford stars David Chung at #2, Andrew Yun at #13 and Sihwan Kim at #53.
