LOS CABOS, Mexico – Highlighted by freshman Barclay Brown's second-place finish, Stanford Men's Golf placed sixth at the 2020 Cabo Collegiate. The Cardinal finished the tournament at 1-over, as No. 9 Arizona State won the event. The field consisted of 14 teams ranked inside the Top 50, with the Cardinal besting No. 25 Oklahoma State, No. 29 California, No. 30 LSU, No. 32 Ole Miss, No. 39 Houston, No. 42 Alabama, No. 47 Florida State and No. 50 Arkansas. All five teams who finished in front of the Cardinal are ranked inside the Top 20.
"It was another solid week by the guys," The Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf Conrad Ray said. "It was great to see Barclay (Brown) have a really nice week and lead us individually. The conditions were very tough on the back nine yesterday, as well as today, and our guys hung in there with some of the top teams in the country. We've made a lot of progress the last six weeks and we're excited to get back out there again in our match against Illinois (March 21) and then host The Goodwin (March 26-28)."
A week after finishing third at The Prestige Individual, Brown registered the best finish of his young career, tying for second. Brown shot even-par 71s in Sunday's first round and again in the final round Tuesday, sandwiched around a seven-under 64 on Monday.
