It has been a few months since I last updated my blog so there is a bunch to share about the program.
The team is busy taking finals this week and is at the end of a very productive winter quarter. It was great to pick up our second win of the year in Hawaii at Mauni Lani Resort and kick off what hopefully turns out to be a great spring. A few weeks back the team finished 8th at the USC Collegiate Invite which a bit disappointing but there were some positives too. Senior Captain Joseph Bramlett worked his way back in the lineup and had a very solid showing for his first event in almost a year and a half. The team has reacted very well and we have put in a bunch of good work over the last few weeks looking forward to our next event, The Callaway Collegiate Match Play Tournament at Dove Mountain. This is the same course that the PGA Tour played on for the WGC Accenture Match Play Event. It looks to be a great test and eager to see how our guys perform in Tucson next week. If you are interested, on Wednesday, March 17th Golfweek TV will debut the Callaway Collegiate Match Play seeding show which will determine the first round matches. Please visit www.collegiatematchplay.com for more info.
Another exciting development is that we have recently received an exemption for the individual winner of the 42nd Annual US Intercollegiate at Stanford into the 2010 Reno-Tahoe Open on the PGA Tour. This is the only exemption of it's kind on the PGA Tour. This will add another wrinkle to an already important collegiate event for 20 teams that will be here to compete in the spring. Please come out to watch if you can.

Finally, VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!! We need you help for the U.S. Intercollegiate at Stanford April 11-13. Play will start at 9:00 AM on Holes 1 and 10 on Sunday and Monday, and at 7:30 AM on Tuesday. Our shifts will be about 2.5 hours each. We need to fill 12 scoring positions each day, 14 spotting positions, and 4 leaderboard updating positions. Drinks and snacks will be provided. This is a great opportunity to contribute to Stanford Golf, and to support the Stanford team and the other fine teams playing in the US Intercollegiate. And, as you know those who volunteer at Stanford golf events during the year will be invited to play in the Appreciation Event in late November. You may sign up by (1) filling in the times and dates you prefer on the boards in the Clubhouse hallway, or (2) by contacting Dan Wagner by email (
Thanks for all of your support of Stanford Golf and hope to see you this spring! Go Cardinal!
