ALPHARETTA, Ga. - Stanford finishes strongly to win the the Golf Club of Georgia Collegiate and gain a second fall season victory. The Cardinal was led by junior Michael Thorbjornsen's 3rd place finish on rounds of 68-70-67.

Thorbjornsen, one of the nation's top players, closed with 4 birdies on his last 5 holes ending with 7 birdies on the day. Michael's tie for 3rd was his fourth top 10 finish of the season, including an individual victory at the Fighting Illini Invitational.

Ethan Ng also had 7 birdies on his final round 68 to finish tied for 10th place. Karl Vilips started with a double bogey and two early bogies but added four birdies the rest of the way for his 72 to tie for 20th. Barclay Brown fired a 73, despite carding two double bogies that were offset by 5 birdies on his final 11 holes. Nate Menon ended the day with a 77, tying for 41st after contributing in the first two rounds. Freshman Dean Greyserman (Fr-Individual) also tied for 41st despite a final round 77, while Alex Yang (Soph-Individual) struggled to a final round 87.

The Fall season is over after a very successful campaign with two wins, a 3rd and a 7th place finish in addition to a dual match, combined men's and women's team, win over Cal. Next up will be a February 8-10 tournament in Hawaii.

Stanford Athletics: JUNO BEACH, Calif. - No. 2 Stanford men's golf defeated defending national champion Texas, 3-2, in the third-place match at The Stephens Cup on Wednesday at Seminole Golf Club. It was a rematch of the 2019 national championship match, which the Cardinal also won at Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Ark.

Ethan Ng (Stanford) defeats Keaton Vo (Texas), 2up Ng fell behind after dropping the second hole of the day, but won the next two to take a 1up lead through four. Wins at No. 7 and 8 gave Ng a 2up lead at the turn, which he maintained until Vo won at No. 13 to cut the Stanford lead to one. Ng went 2up with a win at No. 14, but Vo won the next two holes to tie the match after 16 holes. Ng would close it out with a par and birdie to claim a 2up win and give the Cardinal its first point.

Mason Nome (Texas) defeats Barclay Brown (Stanford), 2&1 Nome maintained a lead throughout after winning the first hole of the day. Brown tied the match at No. 4, but Nome won No. 5 and never looked back to claim the 2&1 win and even the match.

Karl Vilips (Stanford) defeats Christiaan Maas (Texas), 2&1 Much like Nome for Texas, Vilips never trailed in the match. After both players scored par on the opening hole, Vilips won five of the next seven holes and led 5up through eight. After still leading 5up through No. 10, Maas won three of the next four holes, but Vilips matched Maas on each of the next four holes to claim the 2&1 win.

Nate Menon (Stanford) defeats Jacob Sosa (Texas), 1up What turned out to be the clinching match came down to No. 18. Menon didn't lead until a birdie on No. 15 broke a tie, but Sosa's par on No. 17 tied the match. Menon would win on No. 18 with a par to clinch both his match, and the overall match for the Cardinal.

Travis Vick (Texas) defeats Michael Thorbjornsen (Stanford), 1up Perhaps the match with the most star power saw Texas' Travis Vick pull out the match with a birdie on No. 18 to earn the Longhorns their second point. Each player led by one hole, but that was the largest margin, through 11 holes, before Vick went 2up on No. 12. Thorbjornsen bounced back with wins at No. 15 and No. 16 to force the match to No. 18.

Stanford Athletics: FORT WORTH, Texas - Stanford men's golf wrapped up play at the 2022 Ben Hogan Collegiate Invitational on Tuesday with a seventh-place finish at Colonial Country Club. The Cardinal was 11-over on the day to finish the event with a 5-over 845.

After winning the Fighting Illini Invitational, junior Michael Thorbjornsen once again led Stanford with his tie for eighth at this week's event. It was Thorbjornsen's eighth-career, Top-10 finish.

As a team, the Cardinal mustered just seven birdies during Tuesday's final round, and all five golfers were above par.

Stanford Athletics: OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. - Stanford men's golf won the 2022 Fighting Illini Invitational, finishing with an even-par 280 on Sunday and claiming a dominant 12-stroke victory over a stacked field at Olympia Fields Country Club. Junior Michael Thorbjornsen claimed his first collegiate victory, firing a 4-under 66 final round to win by one stroke over Florida's Ricky Castillo and 36-hole leader Illinois' Adrien Dumont de Chassart.

The preseason No. 15 Cardinal claimed its first season-opening tournament win since the 2014 Southwestern Invitational at North Ranch Country Club and its second Fighting Illini Invitational title of all-time (2011). The Cardinal came out on top against an impressive field which included seven of the nation's Top 11 teams: No. 2 North Carolina, No. 3 Florida, No. 5 Arizona State, No. 7 Oklahoma State, No. 9 Texas, No. 10 Pepperdine and the hosts No. 11 Illinois.

Thorbjornsen became the fourth Cardinal (six times) to earn medalist honors at the event, joining Patrick Rodgers (2011, 2012), Cameron Wilson (2013) and Maverick McNealy (2014, 2015). He began the day tied for sixth at 3-under and was even through nine holes Sunday. He'd catch fire on the back nine, though, with birdies on No. 11, 13, 15 and 18 to pull off a come-from-behind victory for his first collegiate win. In the victory, Thorbjornsen led the field in Par 4 scoring (-4), was tied for sixth in Par 3 scoring (-1) and was 2-under on the Par 5s. His 39 pars and 11 birdies over 56 holes were both in the top five.

Stanford got strong play from four scorers. Fellow junior Karl Vilips tied for sixth, his fourth career Top-10 finish, leading the field with 12 birdies. Ethan Ng's tie for ninth marked his best finish since the 2020 Southwestern Invitational. Barclay Brown finished tied for 12th in the team victory, Stanford's first since the Colonial Collegiate last fall.

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. - Stanford was the only team in the 15-team field under par on Sunday, moving up the leaderboard three spots to finish fourth at the Fighting Illini Invitational. The Cardinal shot a 1-under 279 in the third and final round to finish with a 14-over 854 at Olympia Fields Country Club, a course that has hosted several major professional championships.

"It was great to get the rust off a bit and test our games against the best teams in the country," Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf Conrad Ray said on Sunday. "Olympia Fields is a stern test and our guys got better every round. I'm happy for Michael Thorbjornsen on his first collegiate Top 10 and the whole team played hard. There's lot of golf ahead but it was a good first week out!"
