Stanford's Yun continues climb up golf's money list


Stanford grad Andrew Yun slipped a couple of spots on the final day of the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward on the Tour on Sunday, though he still maintained a steady rise on the money list, breaking into the top 10 at No. 8.

Yun fired an even-par 70 to give him a 15-under 265 (65-62-68-70) for the tournament, three strokes behind winner Martin Piller, who shot a 6-under 64 to overtake Yun and second-place Brandon Harkins.

Yun has a pair of second-place finishes, both this year: BMW Charity Pro-Am and The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic. He finished third at the Rust-Oleum Championship and has been in the top 10 on nine occasions.

Stanford grad Cameron Wilson placed 20th overall with a 10-under 270 (64-66-71-69). He moved closer to breaking into the top 100 on the money list.

Incoming Stanford freshman Colt McNealy, like Stephen Curry, playing as an amateur, failed to make the cut. McNealy and Curry shared the same score at 148.

McNealy earned a spot in the field of this year's event by shooting a 1-under 70 in an 18-hole Junior Tour of Northern California qualifier held on the same TPC Stonebrae course in Hayward.

Maverick McNealy, who played in Hayward last year, was in Reno for the Barracuda Championships over the weekend. The only amateur in the field, McNealy finished at 13-over 289.

He opened with rounds of 71 and 70 to make the cut but went 75 and 73 his final two rounds.

Chris Stroud won the title in a playoff, his first PGA Tour victory in his 289th start.
