Washington, DC - The 2007 national championship Stanford men's golf team was honored today at the White House in a championship reception on the South Lawn with President George W. Bush. The team was part of a ceremony that included more than 20 national championship teams as part of White House NCAA Champions Day.

The team enjoyed a tour of historic White House rooms before hearing remarks from the President on the White House South Lawn. The full speech by President Bush is available here.

The Cardinal squad won seven team titles in 2007 and captured its first national title since 1994 at the NCAA Championships in Williamsburg, Va. on June 2. The team led wire-to-wire at the championships, and claimed the program's eighth overall title. The Cardinal finished at 11 under 1,109 (275-278-275-281), at the par 70, 6,803 yard Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, to stake a 12-stroke victory. All five Cardinal golfers earned All-America honors, the most of any season in program history.
