Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Men's Golf concluded play at the 2014 Puerto Rico Classic on Tuesday afternoon, finishing in a tie for ninth with No. 25 Southern Methodist University. Although the Tigers (+4) struggled to advance in the standings during the final 18 holes, some individual competitors had their better performances of the season in the final round.
No. 1 Alabama continued their dominance of the island tournament as they shot an outstanding 45-under-par to take home the tournament title. No. 3 Georgia Tech (-41) and No. 7 Georgia (-29) maintained their positions in second and third place. Missouri's ninth-place Tie was also better than nationally-ranked teams, No. 33 Northwestern and No. 43 North Carolina.
Emilio Cuartero (E) stepped up his game in Tuesday's final round for Missouri. The senior captain played his best 18 holes of the event, shooting a 68 (-4) to jump into a tie for 30th.
Joining Cuartero in 30th was Wilson Sundvold (E). The redshirt sophomore had one of his most consistent tournament efforts of the season, finishing at par (or better) for the second time this year.
Euan Walker (+2) shot even par in the final round to finish in a tie for 38th, advancing in the standings. Senior Hunter Kraus (+4), who got off to his best tournament start of the season in the first two rounds, dropped into a tie for 47th to finish the tournament. Newcomer Linus Lilliedahl (+7) tied for 57th.
Ryan Zech, participating in the individual competition, finished in a tie for second.
