STANFORD, Calif. – The Washington State University men’s golf team concluded play in the second round of competition in The Goodwin at the Stanford Golf Course, Saturday. The Cougars carded a 297 (+17) on the par-70 course and are currently in 17th place.
WSU sits one stroke back from San Francisco (+24, 584). Just eight strokes separate the Cougars and 10th-place Colorado State (+17, 577). Host school Stanford (-11, 549) paces competition. The Cardinal’s Patrick Rodgers (-8, 132) is the top individual performer.
“The teams are unbelievably stacked up,” Cougar Head Coach Garrett Clegg explained. “A good score in the final round could pass a lot of teams. To do that we need five guys to go out and play well. Hopefully tomorrow we can put a good round together.”
Junior Michael Anderson carded four birdies on the day to save par (70), bringing his two-round total to 145 (+5). Anderson is currently tied with senior Blake Snyder in 45th place. Redshirt junior Sang Lee is tied for 53rd, currently 7-over par (147). Junior Charlie Mroz (+11, 151) and senior Jarrett Foote (+13, 153) are tied for 78th and 85th, respectively.
The second round was temporarily delayed as rainstorms hit the Bay Area. Teams were forced indoors for approximately 45 minutes before returning to the course to conclude play. The Goodwin, formerly known as the United States Intercollegiate, was renamed prior to the 2014 edition in honor of former Stanford men’s golf coach, Wally Goodwin.
The tournament concludes Sunday with the final round of play. The Cougars will tee off of hole 10 beginning at 9:40 a.m. Live scoring will be available at golfstat.com for the tournament's duration. Tournament results and recap will be available at the conclusion of competition at wsucougars.com.
