Wilson Sundvold earns Top 10 finish for Missouri.
March 11, 2014
Despite strong pushes from opposing teams in the final round, Mizzou Men's Golf held on to win the Bandon Dunes Championship Tuesday. The Tigers (+11) earned their third victory of the season and first since September. This was also the first time this season that all Tiger starters finished in the Top 30.
UC Davis (+13) had the best final round of any team, shooting 1-over-par and finishing in second place. No. 16 Washington (+18) pulled into third at the conclusion of the tournament. Mizzou also finished ahead of No. 48 Colorado (+21) who tied for fourth and No. 39 Oregon (+38) who finished in ninth.
Cuartero was once again the top finisher for the Tigers. The senior (+1) tied for fourth, which is his fourth Top 10 finish on the year.
Wilson Sundvold (+4) played another good round today, finishing in a tie for seventh. With this finish, the Columbia, Mo., native matched his top finish of the season. He previously tied for seventh at the Turning Stone Tournament.
Ryan Zech (+5) also contributed a solid effort and finished the tournament in a tie for 12th place.
Linus Lilliedahl (+9) and Euan Walker (+9) each tied for 27th. Walker was the most improved Tiger from the first round. After shooting an 8-over-par 79 on Sunday, the freshman dropped seven strokes to shoot a 72 Monday and shot a 71 in Tuesday's final round to secure his place among the Top 30.
The Tigers return to action March 23-25, when they'll compete at The Hootie at Bulls Bay in Awendaw, S.C.
