NCAA men's golf: Stanford strolls to regional victory

By

Stanford shot the day’s best round at 8-under and strolled to victory in the Stanford Regional on Wednesday.

It’s the sixth regional title for Stanford and first since 2017.

Arizona State and North Carolina finished T-2 at 11-under, 12 shots back. Both the Sun Devils and Tar Heels shot 6-under in conditions that featured light rain and temperatures in the 60s.

Georgia Southern was fourth at 6-under after going 2-under on the day. LSU grabbed the fifth and final qualifying spot at 2-over, edging SEC-rival Ole Miss by a single stroke.

Georgia Southern at No. 53 is the lowest-ranked team in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings to advance to the NCAAs.

UNC Greensboro had the most challenging day. The Spartans were 1-over when the final round started by posted a 17-over round on Wednesday, tumbling to an 11th-place finish.

Only the top five teams and the top individual not on an advancing team qualifies for the next round.

Individually, Stanford’s Isaiah Salinda won medalist honors. He shot 66-67-67 to finish three shots clear of the field. Salinda’s teammate David Snyder was among four golfers to finish T-2, along with Ryan Burnett of North Carolina and Arizona State teammates Cameron Sisk and Chun An Yu.

Kyler Dunkle of Utah finished T-6 at 6-under but as the highest-finishing golfer on a team not advancing, Dunkle has made his way through to the NCAAs.

The NCAA Div. I Men’s Golf Championships will be May 24-29 at The Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Ark.
