Stanford Captures No.1 Spot in Division I Preseason Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches Polls

 

NEW YORK, NY?The Golf Coaches Asssociation of America, in conjunction with Golf World and Nike Golf has announced its preseason Division I top 25 ranking.

 

Stanford, the defending NCAA champion, is the top selection in the Golf World/Nike Golf Division I Preseason Coaches? Poll. The Cardinal received 19 first-place votes and will return three of the five starters from last year?s team that won seven titles overall. Among the returning players are two PING All-Americans, senior Rob Grube and sophomore Joseph Bramlett. Joining the team this year as a freshman is 2004 U.S. Junior champion Sihwan Kim.

 

Alabama is second in the poll and returns all five of their starters from last year?s squad that had been ranked at the top of the polls for much of the year.

 

Georgia, Florida and UCLA round out the top-five. All received at least one first-place vote. The Bulldogs return PING All-Americans Brian Harman and Adam Mitchell. The Gators return Billy Horschel, who is a two-time PING First-Team All-America selection.
