Freshman Wu writes fairy tale finish to college golf debut

 

Cardinal freshman Brandon Wu finished his collegiate debut with five straight birdies Tuesday for a 3-under-par 69 at the Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational hosted by Oregon, wrapping up the three-day event at 1-under overall and tied for 34th.

Contested at Pumpkin Ridge's Ghost Creek and Witch Hollow courses, Wu and the Cardinal (272-280-282) tied for fourth among the 15-team field at 26-under.


Taylor Davidson
Wake Forest won the team championship at 37-under. Beau Hossler of Texas earned medalist honors at 18-under.

Wu (74-71-69) was 4-under on the back nine Monday at Witch Hollow, while going 1-over on the back at Ghost Creek during Sunday's opener.

Portola Valley resident Maverick McNealy (66-72-68) led the Cardinal individuals with a fifth-place finish, including respective bookend rounds of 5-under and 4-under, the latter of which came without a bogey.

David Boote (66-74-70) matched McNealy's opening round and closed with a 2-under performance to place within the top-20 at 19th.

Draining 13 birdies through 54 holes was Jeffrey Swegle, who tied for 31st with a 2-under 213.

Viraat Badhwar tied for 42nd at 1-over after rounds of 71-68-77. Badhwar had seven birdies during his second circuit.
