Recap: One hole really doomed the Gig Harbor product. On
the dogleg left par-5 sixth, Stanley failed to carry the pond twice
with his tee shots. In fact, he spent 15 minutes on the tee, until he
landed in the fairway with his fifth shot, and went on to make a
quadruple bogey. The Clemson junior did manage three back-nine birdies,
including a final one on the difficult par-4 finishing hole, making a
33-foot putt. Stanley has now missed the cut in three PGA Tour
Next: Stanley and his Clemson squad will play in
this week’s The Hootie college tournament in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. The
