LOS CABOS, Mexico – No. 4 Stanford bounced back with a strong second day of competition at the Cabo Collegiate, carding a 4-under on Monday to move into a tie for seventh place overall.

Posting the third-best second round score among the 15-team field, Stanford improved five spots and stands at 12-over with 18 holes remaining on Tuesday.

The Cardinal’s turnaround was fueled by Michael Thorbjornsen and Karl Vilips, who both moved into the top-20 with impressive second-round efforts.

Thorbjornsen carded a 6-under 65 to tie Vanderbilt’s Wells Williams for the best score of the day, representing a 10-stroke improvement from Sunday and moving into a tie for fifth overall (-2).

Vilips shot a 2-under 69 and finds himself tied for 18th overall (+2).

Barclay Brown posted a 1-under 70, jumping 20 spots after firing a 78 in Sunday’s round.

Stanford is making its seventh appearance at the Cabo Collegiate. The Cardinal’s best finish at the event was a fifth-place effort back in 2015 (2-over, 854), with 2020 (6th place, 1-over, 853) representing its only other top-10 finish.
