Stanford will host its annual tournament, The Goodwin, Thursday through Saturday at the Stanford Golf Course.
The event features 54 holes of stroke play. Team scores will consist of the cumulative total of its four best scores out of five per round. For the purposes of tournament honors and awards, ties will be split per NCAA Championship tie-breaking procedures.
Goodwin recruited and coached standouts such as Tiger Woods, Casey Martin, Notah Begay III, Joel Kribel and current Stanford head coach Conrad Ray, among many others.
Stanford has claimed 14 team victories and 15 individual titles at the event, the most of any program in each category. The Cardinal captured the first team and individual titles in 1968 during the inaugural year of the tournament.
The 25-team field is comprised of No. 4 USC, No. 10 Stanford, No. 17 North Carolina, Arizona, BYU, Colorado, Colorado State, Denver, Fresno State, Loyola Marymount, Marquette, Nevada, Northern Colorado, Northwestern, Oregon, Pacific, Pepperdine, St. Mary's, San Jose State, Santa Clara, Southern Methodist, UC Davis, UCLA, UNLV and USF.
The field includes Stanford's Maverick McNealy, who won the 2015 event with a 13-under 197.
Stanford senior Anna Salemo has been named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Women's Lacrosse Rookie of the Week.

The honor is the career first for Salemo, who was also named MPSF Offensive Player of the Week on February 22 and has helped lead the Cardinal to a 5-1 record to start the 2016 season with 14 goals and four assists in only six games.
