The San Jose State University men’s golf team returns to action, April 19 & 20, at the U.S. Intercollegiate hosted by Stanford University.
The 54-hole tournament, typically, the last regular-season event prior to the start of the conference championship season, is one more opportunity for West Coast teams to sharpen their play on the par 70, Stanford University Golf Course.
The 17-team field includes Southern California, UCLA, Arizona State, San Diego State, California, UC Irvine, Minnesota, Northern Colorado, Washington, Oregon State, Texas Christian, UC Davis, Nevada, Oregon, Toledo and host Stanford. UCLA, Southern California, San Diego State and Stanford are ranked in the top-20
All teams will play 36 holes on April 19 and 18 holes on April 20. Play begins at 7:30 a.m. (PDT) each day.
Coach John Kennaday has a lineup of Stephan Stallworth, Rosco Valentine, Peter Gibbs, Mark Hubbard and Ryan Collins. Stallworth continues to lead the team in stroke average with a 73.74 figure. Gibbs, who has the most under par rounds on the team with eight, is next at 74.11. Collins, a redshirt freshman, makes his first appearance in the lineup this season.
There is no admission charge to watch the tournament. Spectators are asked to walk along a fairway's first cut of the rough and no closer than 30 yards to a player when following threesomes around the course. Free parking is available at the Stanford Golf Course and at the campus’ horse stables that are near the first four holes of the course.
