Ready for a Run

EUGENE, Ore. – A strong finish Tuesday enabled Stanford to keep its Pac-12 Championships hopes alive entering Wednesday's final round at Eugene Country Club.
The Cardinal scrapped for a 6-under-par score of 349 and stands third at 11-under 1,054 after 54 holes.
Cal combined for a 12-under 343 and took the lead at 15-under 1,050, followed by UCLA (348) at 1,053.
No. 15 Stanford is coming off consecutive victories at The Goodwin and Western Intercollegiate.
"Proud of our guys for hanging in there today on a difficult setup and following a big afternoon yesterday," said Conrad Ray, the Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf. "We are in a good position to make a move, especially considering we are counting five scores out of six. We'll get some rest tonight and I feel confident our guys will be ready to make a run tomorrow."
Falling back early on Tuesday, the Cardinal once again flourished on the back nine. Junior David Snyder rebounded from a triple-bogey on the front nine with three-straight birdies and racked up seven on the day to post a team-best 3-under 68.
Sophomore Nate Menon birdied three-of-his-last six holes to contribute a 71, while seniors Brandon Wu and Isaiah Salinda continued their sensational play.
Playing late in the day, Wu birdied the par-4 17th and 18th holes to record a 70 and is tied for sixth at 3-under 210. He has shot par or better in 10 of his last 12 rounds, has broken par nine times, and is an accumulative 16-under.
Salinda toured his last 15 holes in 3-under to finish with a 69 and is tied for eighth with freshman Daulet Tuleubayev (74) at 2-under 211.
Salinda has also sizzled. He has registered par or better in nine of his last 12 rounds, bettering par seven times and is an accumulative 13-under.
Snyder is even-par through three rounds and shares 16th, while Menon is tied for 31st at 4-over and junior Henry Shimp (71) is knotted for 39th at 6-over.
Collin Morikawa of Cal leads the individual race at 11-under 202, one stroke in front of Kyler Dunkle of Utah.
The Cardinal begins the final round at 9:06 a.m. and will play with Cal and UCLA. Stanford has captured 10 Pac-12 titles, the last in 2016.
