Stanford sends Maverick McNealy, Franklin Huang, Brandon Wu, Isaiah Salinda and Viraat Badhwar to compete against a top national field in the US Collegiate played at the Golf Club of Georgia outside Atlanta.  The event is hosted by Georgia Tech.

Salinda and Badhwar will be in their first event of the new season after sitting out the first tournament played at famed Colonial CC where the Cardinal tied for 6th and McNealy won individually for his record-tying 11th career collegiate win.

The strong field of 17 teams is shown above includes 6 of the nation's top 10 teams, Oklahoma State (2), Auburn (3), LSU (6), Virginia (7), Oklahoma (8) and Wake Forest (9).  Stanford comes in ranked 13th.

Round 1 Results:
Round 1 began with temperatures in the upper 50s and winds from the NW at 13 mph, gusting to 22. Forecast high is 65 degrees today, sunny all day.

Round 1 scoring is shown below as Franklin Huang led Stanford with a fine 2-under par 70 putting in a tie for 6th, Brandon Wu had 73, Maverick McNealy and Viraat Badhwar shot 75 and Isaiah Salinda an 80 to leave Stanford 10 strokes behind leading Oklahoma.  

The course was challenging as the low round was a single 67 turned in by Jimmy Stanger of Virginia.
