Men’s golf kicks off spring with seventh-place finish at Amer Ari

The Stanford men’s golf team is seemingly stuck on seven — seventh place, that is. For the second consecutive year, the Cardinal opened its spring season by finishing seventh at the Amer Ari Invitational in Kona, Hawaii, which ended Saturday. It was also the third straight season in which Stanford put a player in the individual top-five at the event; this year, senior Cameron Wilson led the charge, firing a cumulative 14-under-par score to claim third place.

Only one team event removed from a crushing, season-ending tournament at the NCAA regionals in May and the graduation of key players Andrew Yun and Steve Kearney, the Stanford men’s golf team is seemingly back on top again. The Cardinal thoroughly dominated the 14-team field at the inaugural Erin Hills Invitational in Erin, Wis., winning by eight strokes over conference foe UCLA.
