STANFORD, Calif. – Fresh off its first team victory of the season, the No. 21 Stanford men's golf team will compete in the 73rd Western Intercollegiate hosted by San Jose State, Monday through Wednesday at acclaimed Pasatiempo Golf Club in Santa Cruz, Calif. It marks the final regular-season event before the Pac-12 Championships.
All three rounds will be televised live by the Golf Channel.
The Cardinal is coming off an 18-stroke victory at The Goodwin two weeks ago at Stanford Golf Course. Senior Brandon Wu won his first collegiate title, edging junior teammate David Snyder on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff. Snyder forced extra holes by draining a 40-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation.
