Stanford freshman Mariah Stackhouse set course records Sunday with a 9-under-par 26 on the front nine and a 10-under 61 to win the Peg Barnard Invitational title at Stanford Golf Course.
The Cardinal won the team title with a 569 (289-280), 14 strokes ahead of Cal (285-298). UC Davis was third at 589 (296-293).
Stanford coach Anne Walker said Stackhouse quickly drew a crowd.
"Mariah started eagle-birdie," Walker said. "Through six holes, Mariah was 5 under, and word started spreading. All of a sudden, everyone just started showing up."
Stackhouse tallied two eagles and five birdies on the front nine, with pars on the third and sixth holes. Stackhouse birdied the 12th hole but then had two consecutive bogeys. She finished strong, getting consecutive birdies on the 16th and 17th holes.
Sophomore Mariko Tumangan held the previous course record of 63.
"After I had the eagle on seven, I honestly felt like I was a spectator, and at that point I was just watching myself," Stackhouse said. "I've always known that there was going to be one day where I would have an epic front nine, and I've always wondered if I would be nervous. But it was just so much fun."
Stackhouse finished 10
San Jose State (591) was fifth among 13 teams, and Santa Clara (622) was 12th.
