HUTCHINSON, Kan. -- Stanford junior Patrick Rodgers heads to wind-swept Prairie Dunes for the NCAA golf championships this weekend knowing that a victory would put him in a class by himself.

Rodgers is tied with Tiger Woods for the most individual wins in school history.

The tournament begins Friday with teams playing 54 holes of stroke play to qualify for the eight-team championship playoff, which will be conducted in a match-play format. Those eight will be whittle down Tuesday to two teams playing for the title Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the individual title will be decided Monday after 72 holes of stroke play.

Alabama will be trying to win its second straight team title, but will have to contend with a loaded field that includes Oklahoma State, Georgia and the Cardinal.
