Keeping the momentum this summer

The PAC-12 & NCAA Semifinalist trophies sitting on Coach Ray's desk:

Dear Cardinal Faithful,

A big thank you to all those who have supported us through these final months. What an exciting finish to the season with some great golf... it's hard to believe we now have another year in the books!

However, with the 2013-14 collegiate season behind us, it would be easy to shut things down for the summer and wait for September to roll around again... but that's not the way of a Cardinal golfer...

Stanford Men's golf will have two representatives teeing it up at Pinehurst for the US Open this week:

First to secure his spot was Maverick McNealy:

>> Go 'Tee to Green' with Maverick

Then by virtue of a 1st alternate spot, NCAA Individual Champion, Cameron Wilson, will join the party at Pinehurst:
>> Go 'Tee to Green' with Cameron

>> Cameron featuring in the latest "I am Stanford" video

>> Cameron explains nerd Nation

>> Cameron wins the NCAA Championship

Following the US Open you can turn to the PGA Tour where you can watch Patrick Rodgers and Cameron Wilson tee it up in the Travelers Championship for their first tournament in the professional ranks. We wish both these young men every success in their next career step and thank them for their outstanding contributions to the program.

With 11 collegiate wins and a collegiate career stroke average of 70.30 (69.4 in 2013-14 ~ his Junior year), Patrick Rodgers has either tied or bettered many of Tiger Woods' school records. It is no wonder to anyone that he has been recognized for just about all the year end awards in collegiate and amateur golf.

>> Patrick wins the 2014 Haskins Award

>> Patrick wins the 2014 Nicklaus Award

>> Patrick wins the 2014 Hogan Award

>> Go 'Tee to Green' with Patrick

Across the pond the very same week as the Travelers Championship PGA Tour, Jim Liu and David Boote will be looking to make a run at The Amateur Championship at Royal Portrush and Portstewart, Ireland, UK.

All team members will have great opportunities to play and compete this summer and you can follow their updates at

Best wishes and Go Cardinal!

Conrad and Phil
