Stanford finished in 5th place, 6 strokes behind Oklahoma State as the event was shortened to two rounds following the first day cancellation due to high winds.  Second and final round scoring is shown below including scorecards for all 10 Stanford players who competed.  Top finisher was Isaiah Salinda with 72-69 141 to finish tied for 7th.

Isaiah Salinda and Franklin Huang each finished among the top 10 and the 12th-ranked Stanford men's golf team finished fifth in The Prestige at PGA West Resort, which was completed Wednesday.

Co-hosted by the Cardinal and UC Davis, the tournament was reduced to 36 holes after the first round was cancelled due to high winds.

Sixteen teams and 15 schools competed in the event.  Stanford started strong Wednesday at the Greg Norman Course and surged into the lead midway through the back nine but couldn't sustain it. The Cardinal closed with a 3-over par score of 287 to conclude at 5-over 573.

The Stanford B squad tied for 10th at 28-over 596.

Second-ranked Oklahoma State rallied for a one-shot victory over Pepperdine, combing for a 36-hole total of 1-under 567.  Clay Feagler of Pepperdine claimed the individual title with a score of 7-under 135, closing with a 66.

Fueled by two eagles, Salinda recorded a 2-under 69 and tied for seventh at 1-under 141. He made treys at the par-5 eighth and 16th holes, and added two birdies to match his best finish of the season.

After opening with a 3-under 68, Huang followed with a 75 and earned a share of 10th at 1-over 143. It marked his second top 10 of the season.

Junior Brandon Wu toured the front nine in 2-under and birdied 10 and 11 to reach 4-under. He tallied five birdies and shot 69 to tie for 18th at 2-over 144.
