The Stanford men's golf team has a remarkable history. From its beginnings as a varsity sport in the early 1930s the teams have won 8 national championships (3rd behind Houston & Oklahoma St. since 1930), and its players have won 24 professional major championships (more than any other team) plus 7 US and British Amateur titles.

The names are legendary in American golf: from Lawson Little in the 1930s, to Bud Brownell, Sandy Tatum and Bob Rosburg in the 1940s, and after World War II the Farm has produced Tom Watson, Notah Begay and Tiger Woods. Since 1958 there have been more than 80 All-American seasons by Stanford players. Dozens of Stanford golfers have played professionally over the years.

But the golf history is only part of the story. There have been 3 USGA Presidents who played on Stanford's golf teams (Sandy Tatum, Grant Spaeth and Walter Driver) and numerous notables in the business world. As this story unfolds you are invited to read about more than 240 alums from 1932 to today and contribute updated information.
