    PALO ALTO, Calif. — The University of Colorado men’s golf team slipped one spot here Saturday into a fourth place finish, but nonetheless left here with an outstanding overall effort in the Stanford’s 48th Annual “The Goodwin.”

    The Buffaloes never got much going from the start in shooting a 6-over 286 score the final round, which led to a final 54 hole score 846, also 6-over, for the tournament. CU, ranked No. 69, moved into second place briefly early on, and turned at even-par (the scorers with 10 birdies and 10 bogeys). But the back nine was unkind to the Buffaloes, with just a late eagle and four birdies but those were offset by 13 bogeys and double.

    UC Davis, ranked No. 101 nationally, led from wire-to-wire, opening on fire Saturday with seven birdies and an eagle among its four scorers to open an insurmountable 18-shot lead en route to finishing with a 13-under 827. That was good for a 10-stroke win over No. 33 UNLV (837), which leapfrogged both Stanford and the Buffs to grab the runner-up spot. The No. 8 and host Cardinal finished third (839), followed by Colorado and Oregon (848) to round out the top five.

    The three leaders from Friday – UCD, Stanford and CU – teed off last and had to bear the brunt of winds that ratcheted up about halfway into the final round, gusting to 25 miles per hour from the northwest.

    Looks like the last round they went back a LITTLE bit, but still overall a very good tournament for the Buffs- finishing ahead of MANY ranked (in some cases HIGHLY ranked) teams, so should help their ratings.
