Yun finishes seventh at Patriot Invitational


All-American Stanford golfers Andrew Yun, Patrick Rodgers and David Chung were among the field of 84 at the inaugural Patriot All-America Invitational hosted by the Arizona Golf Association, which was completed Friday at the Wigwam Golf Resort in Litchfield Park.

The 54-hole event is comprised of recent PING All-Americans in NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA, NJCAA and AJGA.

Yun finished in a tie for seventh to lead the trio of Cardinal golfers. He rebounded from a second round 75 with a final round 67 to finish 2-under, 12 strokes behind winner Cory Whitsett of Alabama.

Rodgers tied for 10th, with rounds of 73, 69 and 70, which including four birdies on Friday. Chung tied for 23rd on rounds of 72, 70 and 73.

Whitsett finished with a 5-under-par 66 on the Gold Course. His three-round total of 14-under 199 was three strokes better than Alabama teammate Bobby Wyatt.

Each player in the field received a golf bag at the opening ceremony with the name and branch of service of a fallen or disabled military member whom they represented this week. The respective athletic departments of the student-athletes will auction these golf bags with all proceeds designated for the Folds of Honor Foundation.
