Stanford defends Pac-12 golf title

PULLMAN, Wa. – The Stanford Cardinal successfully defended its Pac-12 Men’s Golf Championship on Wednesday, firing a collective closing round 340, creating a 14-shot gap between first and second places in the third-day event at Palouse Ridge.

Each team played six players with the five best scores being counted.

The Cardinal made it a clean sweep as junior Maverick McNealy completed a wire-to-wire individual victory, setting a course record for good measure on Wednesday.

McNealy fired a 9-under 61 to easily win medalist honors. He had rounds of 65-68-68-61 for an 18-under 262, setting a conference record. Aaron Wise of Oregon finished second, 10 shots behind McNealy. Wise toured the 7,257-yard par 70 course superbly over the 72 holes, shooting 65-70-70-67 – 272.

Pre-tournament favorite Arizona State faltered during the final round, soaring to a 364 score to finish third.

Southern Cal and Washington, who finished fourth and fifth, respectively, are among the Pac-12 teams expected to receive invitations for the NCAA Regionals.
