April 26, 2014
Mizzou Golf shot even-par during the second round of the 2014 SEC Championship and advanced in the standings into a tie for seventh with Mississippi State at the Sea Island Golf Club in St. Simons Island, Ga.
Despite getting off to a rocky start in the morning and falling to as low as 12th in the standings, the Tigers (+8) played extremely well on the back nine to put themselves in a good position for Sunday's final round. The Tigers finished the second round ahead of five nationally-ranked teams.
"We did what we needed to do at the end to position ourselves for a run tomorrow," Assistant Coach Judd Easterling said. "These teams are solid from top to bottom, but we hung tough today and are ready to get back on the course and finish strong tomorrow."
During Saturday's second round, No. 1 Alabama (-22) extended their lead to 17 strokes. No. 26 Auburn (-5) and No. 24 South Carolina (-5) are tied for second. No. 22 LSU (-1) is four strokes behind and the sole holder of fourth place.
Emilio Cuartero (-1) was the top-performing Tiger and rose in the standings during the second round. The senior is tied for eighth and looking to earn his sixth Top 10 finish of the season.
Ryan Zech (+2) continued to play well Saturday, finishing the day tied for 24th.
Euan Walker (+4) and Hunter Kraus (+4) remained tied, both dropping four strokes from their first round scores and advancing to 36th. Walker played a fantastic last five holes, notching one eagle, one birdie and three pars.
Wilson Sundvold (+10) is tied for 60th.
The final round of the 2014 SEC Championship begins Sunday at 6:30 a.m. CT. Live scoring can be found at golfstat.com.
