Freshman Sihwan Kim took third in his first collegiate tournament to spark the top-ranked Stanford men’s golf team to a third-place finish in the Topy Cup. Kim fired rounds of 67-70-67 to finish with a 9-under 207 total. The defending NCAA champion Cardinal posted its worst round in the three-day tournament at 289 to finish at 17-under 847.

Davis chimes in on quarterback situation
