The Stanford men’s golf team had a day to forget on Wednesday, shooting an 18-over-par 302 to drop from a tie for 13th to 22nd at the 30-team NCAA Championships. With only one round remaining before the field is narrowed to eight teams, the Cardinal sits 11 strokes out of eighth place.
Freshman Patrick Rodgers once again led Stanford, shooting a one-over 72 to end the second round four strokes off the individual lead, currently held by Illinois sophomore Thomas Pieters. The problem for Stanford is that no other Cardinal golfer is ranked in the top 90 in the 155-player field.
Stanford will have one more chance to keep its season alive, as the final round tees off today from the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
