16th-seeded Stanford men’s golf travel to Stillwater to take place in the NCAA Men’s Golf Championships in Karsten Creek Golf Club beginning on May 24.
This is the Cardinal’s 11th appearance in the NCAA Championships in the past 14 years, and they are gunning for their ninth national title.
In order to get to Stillwater, Stanford placed second in the NCAA Pacific Regional, surging to the runner-up spot with a final-round-best 11-under par 277. Junior Brandon Wu paced the Cardinal with a second-place finish with rounds of 67-67-68.
Stanford has had a recent string of success as it has placed third at The Goodwin and fourth at the Pac-12 Championships.
“There’s so many good teams in college golf,” Stanford head coach Conrad Ray said. “To have a seat at the table with that group is a nice accomplishment. Anything can happen.”
