Conrad Ray, a former Cardinal standout and touring golf professional, is in his seventh season as The Knowles Family Director of Men's Golf at Stanford.
During his tenure as head coach, Ray has led the Cardinal to five appearances in the NCAA Championships, culminating with the school's eighth national title in 2007. In addition, Stanford athletes have been well decorated under Ray's watch, as he has helped produce 13 All-Americans, one Pac-10 Player of the Year, one Pac-10 Scholar Athlete of the Year, two Pac-10 Freshmen of the Year, nine first team All-Pac-10 selections and eight first team all-academic honorees.
Last season, the Cardinal earned a preseason No. 1 ranking by Golfweek and enjoyed a trio of top-three finishes during the fall, including a first place showing at the Gifford Invitational. Stanford also finished atop the leader board at the Mauna Lani Invitational to start the spring campaign.
