ALPHARETTA, Ga. – A two-over-par 290 on the third and final day of the United States Collegiate Championship earned the ninth-ranked Stanford men’s golf team a tie for seventh. The three-day event at The Golf Club of Georgia’s Lakeside Course saw the Cardinal post collective scores of 288-288-290 (866).

Patrick Rodgers started the third round tied for 41st, but was the low man Sunday with a 67 to finish 2-under on the weekend. Rodgers (75-72-67, 214) tied with Cameron Wilson (69-71-74, 214) for 15th overall.

“We struggled a bit with big numbers and a lack of birdies on the par-fives, but we did a lot of things well,” Stanford’s Knowles Family Director of Men’s Golf Conrad Ray said. “Cameron and Patrick played solid and both were close to having another chance to win. We’re looking forward to a quick turnaround at next week’s event.”

Stanford will travel to the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate (Oct. 28-29) in Dallas to wrap up its fall season.

David Boote (69-74-74, 217, +1) tied for 29th as Jim Liu (79-71-75, 225, +9) and Maverick McNealy (75-74-76, 225, +9) tied for 60th through three rounds on the par-72, 7,017-yard course.


Rodgers final-round 5-under went without a bogey. The All-American was 4-over on the front nine to open the tournament and responded with respective front-nine performances of 2-under and 3-under on his way to the top-15 finish.

Wilson was 4-over through 11, but rolled in birdies on three of the next seven holes to close his final round with a 2-over 74.

Fifth-ranked Oklahoma State captured the team title by one stroke over defending champion Georgia Tech.

The Cowboys nearly were tied at the finish by the second-ranked Yellow Jackets, but Georgia Tech’s Ollie Schniederjans missed an eight-foot birdie putt at the 18th hole, giving Oklahoma State the win at 15-under 849.

Schniederjans was the individual champion at 10-under 206.  The victory also earned him a tournament exemption for Tour’s Air Capital Classic next June.

Virginia’s Ben Rusch was second in the individual race at 6-under 210, followed by Georgia Tech’s Anders Albertson at 5-under 211.

Wake Forest finished third at 2-under 862, followed by No. 14 Virginia (863). Third-ranked Texas A&M and No. 17 UCLA shared fifth place at even-par 864.
