Good luck to David Boote and his Stanford University Men’s Golf teammates in the match play stages of the 2014 NCAA Golf Finals today.

David_Boote_in_actionDavid’s team won the stroke play qualifying and David put in a tremendous performance by finishing only one shot off getting into a play-off for the leading individual medalist honor with a fantastic last round of -5, 65.

David finished tied third alongside James Ross from Scotland on a total score of five under par, 205, at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Stanford senior Cameron Wilson who missed a par putt on his 54th and final hole that would have clinched the NCAA individual title slotted home an 8-footer for birdie on the third play-off hole, the par-5 17th, to defeat Georgia Tech’s Ollie Schniederjans for the leading medalist honors.

Stanford junior Patrick Rodgers, who is expected to turn pro after the 2014 NCAA Golf Championship, came up short in his bid for his 12th career collegiate win.
