Cardinal Win the 16th Annual Big Game Cup

Congratulations to the Stanford Cardinal on winning the 16th Annual Big Game Cup! It was a true fight the entire day but luckily the Card came out on top scoring 41 points to Cal's 40 in team best ball competition. The Cup has been in the hands of the Bears for quite a few of the last 16 years so it is great to get it back on this side of the Bay! Great job to everyone that played and thanks for your support. Go Cardinal!

Welcome to my Blog!

Hello everyone ... especially Friends of Stanford Men's Golf!

Welcome to the new Stanford Men's Golf Website. I am excited to be part of this
great project and I think it will serve a vital need for the golf community and provide a way for all of us to come together and celebrate the richness of our world renowned program.

In this blog I look forward to giving you a few insights on what the team is up
to and how everyone is playing. I will also be reminding you of some of
our upcoming team and community events. This website will be the place
where you can come to get all the information you are looking for!

It is hard to believe that the fall season is behind us. Looking back, I
think there are numerous things that went really well and a few things
we need to continue to work on as we move towards the NCAA's in June at
Purdue. The team competed five times this fall with a few close calls to
victory. There were numerous highlights and here are a few for you to enjoy...

1) Dinner with Tiger ... Playing at Tiger's home course in the Isleworth
Intercollegiate was a treat. Tiger was around for three full days and
hosted the team at his place for dinner after the first round. What a
great set up he has there ... his house is right off the tee box of the driving
range, the golf course is an awesome test, and he is treated like a
king! The hospitality carried over to us for our short time there and
the guys enjoyed getting to know Tiger better and hearing and seeing
why he is so successful. His thoughts on the importance of shotgame, playing strategy, and putting were very enlightening for both players and coach. I was especially impressed with how passionate he is about Stanford and his desire to win. I told him that he missed his calling in coaching and mentioned that anytime he wanted to be our volunteer assistant he would be welcome! The team struggled a bit on
the bermuda greens but even though it was the lowest finsh of the fall I feel like it may have been the most meaningful week. Freshman Sihwan Kim's quote after chunking
his driver off the tee with Tiger watching was hilarious ..." Coach ...
when Tiger was there my body wouldn't move!!!" A life changing week for
all of us!

2) Tokyo here we come.... The team competed in the Topy Cup in at Tanagura
Country Club just outside Tokyo this fall. This was the first event of
the year and the first time Stanford has been invited to play since
1994. I was actually on the team back then and got to take Tiger's spot
after he qualified for the Walker Cup. It hasn't changed much over
there and the event is still very special. Seeing the kids enjoy the
local customs, food, and golf was priceless and we had a real chance to
win until the final round where westruggleed a bit coming in. The team
that won is Japan's top university team and interestingly enough there
are no amateurism rules, scholarship limitations, or squad limits so it
truly was the best of the best.

3) The Siebel Varsity Traing Complex... On the home front on our new practice facilty is really taking shape. We are close to finishing the grassing portion of the project with almost 30 acres of sod being laid. With six green complex's
over 30 acres I am hard pressed to find anything else like it in the
country. The team will benefit in so many ways not to mention what it
means for recruiting. Please feel free to contact me if you want a tour
or check out the facilities tab on the new website for photos and layout.

There are a ton of great memeoris as you can tell and much to be thankful for but we are really looking forward to what lies ahead. I feel like this team has just as good of chance to win as did last year's. Experience and finding out which five guys will be our starters is what we need to work through as we move forward. We
are very deep, very talented, and of common purpose. Now it is just a
matter of having the confidence and work ethic needed to get there. It
has been over 20 years since a team has won back to back titles and I
think we can do it this year.

Thanks for reading through my blog and I look forward to adding to it as we go along. We appreciate all of your support and interest!

November 2, 2007 Cardinal Golf Classic

I hope this short note finds you doing well and enjoying your summer. We are doing our best on this end to soak up the amazing feeling of being the 2007 National Champions and we are already looking forward to the start of next season. The top five guys report back to campus on August 31st in preparation for our first event just outside of Tokyo, Japan. We can't wait to get started and it is all possible because of your support.

The purpose of this note is to let you know that we have identified November 2nd, 2007 as the day that we will have our third annual Cardinal Golf Classic. Hopefully those of you that have played in the past can attest to how nice the day is for all that participate. Like last year we will have wonderful tee gifts, food, and auctions items for you to bid on. The afternoon of November 2nd is also the afternoon before the Stanford vs. Washington football game. We hope you can make a weekend out of it and cheer the Cardinal on to victory.

By the first part of September we will be forwarding on the particulars as far as cost structure, times and final details. The afternoon promises to be a great one and we hope you can make it to celebrate Stanford Golf's Eighth National Championship as well as the season ahead. Please mark you calendars and let us know if you have any questions.

All the best and Go Cardinal!

Dick McElyea Celebration on August 4th

Dear Friends of Stanford Men's Golf:

Please take a minute to read the following letter from Bob Murphy. Bob is organizing a get together to honor and celebrate Stanford Hall of Fame Golf Great, Dick McElyea.

Go Cardinal!


To: Friends of Dick McElyea

The last time we saw our dear old pal Dick McElyea was when we all gathered to pay tribute to a wonderful Championship Golf Team.

Dick had to make a great competitive effort just to be there. Obviously in poor health and facing almost immediate surgery, none of that was going to keep him from honoring these brand new National Champions.

Just a few short days later he had putted out on 18 and headed for that big clubhouse in the sky. What a tragic and sudden loss it was for all of us.

Now we are going to gather one again, just behind that 18th green at Stanford, tell a few stories, bring back some great memories and probably fight back a tear or two!

Please join us on Saturday, August 4 at 5:30 p.m. to recall the great McElyea triumphs, that day a few years ago when McElyea and "Sam" O'Donnel emptied the great old hotel at Turnberry at 5:00 a.m. and that great joy which "Wimpy" always displayed with your three dollars after he had just won the front, the back, and the match!!!

Please join us and bring along a story or two. Hope to see you there.

Bob Murphy

The Passing of a Stanford Golf Great

Dear Friends of Stanford Golf:

With sadness I send the news about the passing of one of Stanford Golf's All-Time great players, Dick McElyea, on June 19th. Thanks to Richard Harris, Grant Spaeth, and Art Shroeder for their help compiling Dick's very memorable record.



J. Richard "Dick" McElyea, two-time Pacific Coast Conference individual golf champion (1950, 1951), and member of the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame, died June 19 in Palo Alto. He had entered the Stanford Hospital for surgery for lung cancer (he had never smoked); he died shortly thereafter of a heart attack. Dick grew up in Palo Alto, and learned golf at the Stanford Golf Course from his father Ralph McElyea, a mid-Peninsula haberdasher, who was an early member of the Stanford Golf Club. Golf has been a multi-generational passion of the McElyeas, and Dick's grandsons Conor and Cory McElyea are outstanding junior golfers. At Stanford, Dick's teammates called him "Goo," because he was baby-faced. After graduating from Stanford in 1952 with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics, Dick obtained an MBA in 1954 from Stanford Business School. He was a founder and executive vice president of Economic Research Associates, a prominent San Francisco-based real estate and business consulting firm that specialized in golf, resort, recreational, and other real estate developments, worldwide. His work frequently took him to Scotland, and of course he brought his clubs. Dick's last golfing activity was June 13 at the patio behind Stanford's 18th green, where he took part in the celebration of the 2007 NCAA championship team. Dick was a fun-loving guy, who with his wife Ann enthusiastically hosted many large and fun parties. Ann says that a "Joy Fest will happen later--maybe after an improved Stanford football team weekend this coming Fall."

Matt Shin, competing as an individual, finished 66th with a 231 (74-78-79).

USC's Rory Hie carded only an even-par 71 Tuesday, but it was enough to give him a two shot victory over teammate Jamie Lovemark and Loyola Marymount's Brian Locke.

Norman, Okla. - Spencer Cole of Greer, S.C., Russell Henley of Macon, Ga., Andrew Putnam of University Place, Wash., and Steve Ziegler of Broomfield, Colo., will represent their country in the 2007 World Junior Golf Team Championship June 19-22 in Toyota City, Japan. Coaching Team USA will be Kyle Blaser of Oklahoma City University. The Americans are looking to regain the title after winning the championship in 2004 and 2005 and placing fifth in last year's event.

This year's event will take place at the Chukyo Golf Club - the same location that has hosted the tournament the previous two years.

Cole - an Alabama signee - is a 2005 Third-Team and 2006 Honorable Mention AJGA Rolex All-American. The Canon Cup Team member won the 2006 and 2007 Verizon Junior Heritage Tournament as well as the 2006 AJGA Hargray Classic. "It's a very big deal and I'm really looking forward to the opportunity," Cole said.

Henley is a three-time Georgia All-State selection and two-time Georgia State Golf Association Player of the Year. He won the 2005 Middle Georgia Championship Tournament and the 2006 Georgia State Golf Association Junior Golf Championship. "I never thought I would be on this team, but now that I've been selected, I'm very excited," the Georgia signee said.

Putnam - the 2006 Washington and Pacific Northwest Player of the Year - is a Second-Team AJGA Rolex All-American. He won the 2006 AJBA Pacific Northwest and was a semi-finalist at the U.S. Junior. "Anytime you get a chance to represent your country is a great opportunity. The feeling is just amazing," said Putnam, a signee at Pepperdine University.

Ziegler - an AJGA HP Scholastic All-American and Second-Team AJGA Rolex All American - is the two-time high school player of the year in Colorado. He won the 2006 FCWT UNM Golf Classic and finished as the runner-up at the 2006 AJGA Midwest Junior. He has signed with Stanford. "I was thrilled [to be invited]," Ziegler commented. "There is no greater privilege than to represent your country."
