Those Stanford kids sure are quick learners.
On Saturday, the Cardinal men's and women's golf teams got to meet Tiger Woods, who was at The Farm to see fellow golfer Notah Begay get inducted into the school's hall of fame. One day later, Cardinal sophomore Viraat Badhwar set the Stanford course with a 59.

According to Badhwar's bio page on the Stanford site, his lowest round as a freshman was a 67. A native of Queensland, Australia, Badhwar also finished tied for 14th at the NCAA Regional Qualifying tournament last season.
Stanford did not play a competitive event this past weekend, but Badhwar will get the chance to keep the momentum going when the Cardinal heads to the United States Collegiate Championship in Alpharetta, Ga., starting on Friday.
Based on this immediate result, it's clear that whenever Tiger officially decides to retire from the PGA Tour, he'll have a successful career as a teacher waiting for him.
