NCAA men's golf regionals: Stanford off to blistering start

GoStanford.com

The Pac-12 is poised to make another run at an NCAA men's golf title with six teams in the field, and the path to the championship started on Monday. Four individual golfers - three from UCLA, one from Cal - round out the tournament for the Conference of Championships. After all rounds are complete on Wednesday, the low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will advance to the NCAA Championship. Here's where the Pac ended up after Day 1. 

Stanford, California Regional

Stanford

Maverick McNealy is tied atop the individual ranks after carding a 5-under 65 and the Stanford Cardinal lead the 13-team field by a mile following Monday's NCAA Men's Regional Golf Championship round one on their home course. Second-place Baylor is six strokes behind the Card entering day two tomorrow. 

California

Collin Morikawa is representing the Bears as an individual in rival territory. He carded par to finish T17 overall in the first round.

Sammamish, Washington Regional

USC

The Trojans sit in second overall after a strong first round, two strokes behind first-place Florida State. Sean Crocker leads all individuals with a 7-under 64 -- his best round ever as a Trojan. Crocker notched six birdies on the front nine and two more on the back nine, only bogeying once. Justin Suh (68) is tied for third individually after scoring an eagle on the seventh hole.

Washington

The Huskies are in 10th place after round one. 

UCLA

Cole Madey is representing the Bruins as an individual in the Sammamish regional. He finished 4-over 75 is T45 overall.

Austin, Texas Regional

Arizona State

The Sun Devils are at fourth after round one with help from Chun An Yu, who finished with a par score, tied with teammate Alex Del Rey Gonzalez --who birdied four times on the back nine--to lead the team. Texas leveraged their home-course advantage with a first place finish, where they sit at 277. The Sun Devils are 13 strokes behind the Longhorns. 

Baton Rougue, Louisiana Regional

Oregon

Reigning national champion Oregon sits in third place, 11 strokes back of first place Louisiana State after the first round in Baton Rougue. Edwin Yee shined, scoring a 4-under 68 after birdying five times on the front nine. 

Wyndham Clark and Norman Xiong carded even par scores to keep the Ducks afloat. The hype is real, though:

West Lafayette, Indiana Regional

Colorado

The Buffs are in 11th place after round one, 16 strokes behind first place UNLV. Yannik Paul and John Souza finished 3-over par (75) to lead the team.

College Grove, Tennessee Regional

UCLA

Tyler Collier, representing UCLA as an individual in Tennessee, is tied for 24th after carding 1-over-par 73.
