LA QUINTA, Calif. – Led by sophomore Daulet Tuleubayev's career-best finish of tied for sixth, Stanford Men's Golf finished eighth at The Prestige presented by Charles Schwab. The Cardinal edged out ranked opponents such as LSU, Northwestern and Arkansas en route to shooting a 2-under 850 on the Greg Norman Course at PGA West. The Cardinal posted a 5-under 279 on Wednesday.
"I was happy with how the guys battled all week," The Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf Conrad Ray said. "We improved every round. The Norman Course was a great test of golf and for us to have a few guys towards the top of the leaderboard is a positive step."
Tuleubayev was steady all week, as all three rounds were under par. He shot a first- and third-round 69 with a second round at 1-under 70. He bested his previous best finish of tied for seventh at the Pac-12 Championship last season.
"The individual tournament also provided some great experience for Barclay, Ashwin and David to get some quality reps on a challenging course," Ray continued. It was fun to see them have a chance to win."

As a team, Stanford played the par 3s at 1-over, the second-best score in the field. The Cardinal's 177 pars were tied for second-most in the field.
