Season in review: Stanford men’s golf

For the Stanford men’s golf team, the 2013-14 campaign seemed like one of destiny.

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.

For the No. 9 Stanford men’s golf team, the long wait between the fall and spring seasons is finally over, as the Card is scheduled to compete at the Amer Ari Invitational in Kona, Hawaii starting Thursday.
