This week: WGC-HSBC Champions, Thursday through Sunday, Mission Hills Golf Club, Olazabal, Guangdong, China.
First-round score: 7-over-par 79.
Position: Stanley is tied for 76th, 14 strokes behind co-leaders Louis Oosthuizen and Adam Scott (65).
Recap: The only golfer in the 78-player field to post a worst score than Stanley was South Africa’s Jbe Kruger (83). It was the Gig Harbor native’s second-highest round of the year behind an opening 80 at the PGA Championship. He ended Thursday with a back-nine 44 – including a quadruple bogey-9 on the 15th hole where water lurks all down the left side of the course’s signature hole.
Tee time Friday: 7:10 p.m. PDT Thursday.
