Aug. 3, 2008
STANFORD, Calif. - Recent Stanford graduate Rob Grube ('08) finished in a seven-way tie for 14th place in his PGA Tour debut with a seven-under-par 281 after four rounds of play today in the PGA Legends Reno-Tahoe Open. The former Cardinal standout shot rounds of 70-74-69-68 at Reno's Montreux Golf and Country Club, earning $48,000 out of the $3,000,000 purse for his effort.
Grube, who was invited to play in the tournament on a sponsor's exemption, was one of two players not on the FedEx Cup circuit to make the cut and finish all four rounds. The other, Chip Sullivan, tied for 49th place with a one-under-par 287.
29-year old Parker McLachlin captured the tournament title with an 18-under-par 270, seven strokes ahead second place finishers Brian Davis and John Rollins.
Grube, 23, will go down in history as one of the best golfers to compete for Stanford. He earned his fourth consecutive first team All-Pac-10 Conference Award this past season and was also named the conference's men's golf scholar-athlete of the year. A native of Hinsdale, Ill., he posted five top-10 finishes in his 11 tournaments as a senior. Grube, who graduated from Stanford with degrees in political science and history, was a finalist for both the Cleveland Golf Bryon Nelson Award and the Ben Hogan Award.
