Gig Harbor’s Kyle Stanley knew if his putter obliged, he could make
noise at this week’s 111th NCAA Division I men’s championships in West
Lafayette, Ind.

It has.

And he’s certainly in the hunt for the title.

Stanley, the sophomore at Clemson, carded the day’s third-best round
Thursday – a 4-under-par 68 – to trail Florida’s Billy Horschel by one
stroke at the midway point of the NCAAs on the Kampen Course at Birck
Boilermaker Golf Complex.

After his tournament-best 67 Thursday, Horschel grabbed the outright
lead at 5-under 139, while Stanley, the ex-Bellarmine Prep star who was
the 2007 NCAA runner-up, sits at 140.

Stanley made four birdies on his final nine holes (Nos. 1 through 9) to move up the leaderboard.

“This is a good golf course, and a great test of golf,” Stanley
said. “It puts a premium on getting the ball in the fairway. I hit most
of the fairways (Thursday), and if I didn’t, I was only out a little
bit where it wasn’t too penalizing.”
