Jace Long Wins Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate; Missouri Finishes 7th

Sunday, Oct. 16 –

Missouri Tigers men’s golf team finished the three-day Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate in seventh place with a final score of 891.

But the bigger story was Tigers phenom Jace Long, who tied for first in the tournament along with North Carolina State’s Mark McMillen.

Long shot 71, 72 and 71 in the three days, respectively, for a final score of 214. He was two-under-par for the weekend.

Throughout the weekend, Long and McMillen were contesting for the top spot, as a matter of only a few strokes seemed to always separate the two. Junior Jace Long has already won the Wolverine Invitational this season and adds this victory to his impressive resume.

The Tigers were third at the end of day one but fell to sixth in day two, and finally a spot lower on the final day of the event.

MU’s Emilio Cuartero and Brad Moody both tied for 35th. Meanwhile, Hunter Kraus and Ryan Zech both had solid outings in contributions to the finish.

Kent State claimed first in team overall standings, while Virginia took second. 15 teams participated in the tournament.

The Missouri Tigers golf team will hit the road again to participate in the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate tournament in Dallas, Texas on Oct. 31.
