Men’s Golf Wraps up Fall Season at Royal Oaks Intercollegiate

Tuesday, Nov. 1-

Mizzou’s No. 15 men’s golf team finished its fall season on October 30 at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate in Dallas, Texas.

Senior PGA hopeful Jace Long, who has been leading the men’s golf team the entire campaign with a 68-stroke average, got the highest place for the Mizzou team. He, along with three others, tied for sixth with a score of 209 after three rounds (77-64-68).

After starting the tournament with a score of 77, Long fought his way back into the top 10 of the tournament. Long recently won the first round at the PGA Tour Qualifying School with a score of 74. His next PGA Tour round will be in mid-November.

Finishing behind Long was junior Emilio Cuartero, with a final score of 217 (70-72-75). He claimed 39th overall.

Despite overcoming several teams in the Top 50, including Tulsa, North Carolina and Oklahoma, Mizzou finished seventh. Other teams that came out were Texas A&M, New Mexico, who won the event, and Southern Methodist.

The Tigers will have a chance to improve their ranking in the spring season that begins on February 11 at Farms Collegiate in Santa Fe, Calif.
