Stanford freshman shoots 67 to pace Cardinal men golfers


Stanford freshman Brandon Wu's 4-under 67 in the first round of The Prestige at PGA West paced the Cardinal men's golf team on Monday in La Quinta.

Wu, who is second among individuals, started his round at the par-71, 7,046-yard Greg Norman Course with consecutive birdies and never looked back. He was 3-under before stumbling on the par-3 13th, but answered with two birdies on the next three holes to finish one shot behind Pepperdine's Frederick Wedel (-5).

LSU posted a 7-under 277 to take the opening-day lead over the Cardinal (minus-2). USC is third at 1-over.

Stanford's Maverick McNealy had only one bogey to finish tied for third at 3-under. Sacred Heart Prep grad Bradley Knox is tied for 11th after contributing four birdies against three bogeys.

Stanford freshman Isaiah Salinda is tied for 18th while neutralizing four birdies with five bogeys. Teammate Jeffrey Swegle (+4) and David Boote (+5) each managed a pair of birdies in the first round.

The three-day tournament resumes Tuesday.
