WINDEMERE, Fla. - The fifth-ranked Stanford men's golf team is in first place after the opening round of the prestigious Isleworth Collegiate Championships being held in Windemere, Fla.
The Cardinal, paced by a four-under 68 by Steve Ziegler and a two-under 70 by Sihwan Kim, shot an opening round 289 today at the Isleworth Golf Club and sit atop of the leader board in one of the strongest fields assembled on the fall calendar.
Stanford is one shot ahead of TCU (290), two shots clear of top-ranked Oklahoma State (291) and three strokes ahead of 10th-ranked Florida heading into Monday's second round.
