The Mizzou men’s golf team rallied back on the final day of the Turning Stone Intercollegiate golf meet in Verona, New York to earn a team title as well as several individual titles.

Headed into the last day of their fall golf season opener, the Tigers saw themselves trailing in the competition by 11 strokes. The team started off the morning by rounding out the first nine holes shooting 5-under. On the back nine, the Tigers pulled for eight combined birdies and ended up two strokes ahead of LSU for a team win. 

Mizzou ended the last day with a 6-under 282. The grit Mizzou showed on the final day ended up not only with a first place team finish, but it propelled three Tigers into the top 10. 

For the individual competition, the most notable standout was senior Jack Parker. In the final round, Parker totaled six birdies on the front nine and shot an even par on the back nine to win the individual title with a 9-under 207. He shared his first place victory with LSU’s Michael Sanders.

MU Sophomore Jack Lundin finished runner-up with a 6-under 210. Lundin led the tournament on the first day, but had a slower second day. He ended the final day with four birdies to take the second place spot. Senior Tommy Boone also finished in the top 10 with a 4-under 212. 

The impressive comeback on the final day for the win gave Mizzou its ninth Turning Stone title. Next, the Tigers travel to Bremerton, Washington on Sept. 20-21 for the Husky Invitational.
