Wilson takes over the lead at Amer Ari Invitational

Stanford men's golfer Cameron Wilson sank eight birdies in the span of 10 holes midway through his second round of the Amer Ari Invitational at the Waikoloa Kings' Course in Hawaii.

Wilson finished with a 7-under 65 to take over first place heading into Sunday's final round.

Wilson was 4-under through his first eight holes on the par-72 course, beginning on the 11th and shelving birdies on 14, 15, 16 and 18.
