April 27, 2014
Play at the 2014 SEC Championship concluded Sunday, with Mizzou Golf posting an impressive comeback to tie for sixth with No. 21 Arkansas in Sea Island, Ga.
As a team, the Tigers (+2) improved their play and dropped strokes throughout every round of competition. With their sixth-place tie, Mizzou beat or tied six nationally-ranked progams, in what turned out to be a heated competition for teams hovering around the middle of the standings.
No. 1 Alabama (-34) won its third straight SEC Championship title, setting a school record with its final score of 806. Finishing second was No. 22 LSU (-18) who made an impressive jump in the standings during the final round of competition. No. 26 Auburn (-11) rounded out the top three-teams at the 2014 tournament that was loaded with some of the best collegiate talent in the country.
Emilio Cuartero (-4), who tied for ninth, was once again the top finisher for the Tigers. The senior improved in every round of play, shooting below par in the final two rounds. The Lledia, Spain, native has six Top 10 finishes in his final season as a Tiger.
Ryan Zech (-1) played his best round of golf during Sunday's final round. The junior tied for 19th after shooting a 3-under-par 67 with no bogeys, advancing in the standings at the conclusion of play.
Euan Walker (+5) remained tied for 36th. The freshman has been a consistent shooter for the Tigers all season, finishing at or within the Top 40 of every tournament.
Hunter Kraus (+6) finished just behind Walker as the sole holder of 42nd. The senior's best round of the tournament was in Saturday's second round where he shot an even-par 70.
Wilson Sundvold (+9) also played his best round Sunday. The redshirt sophomore shot a 1-under-par 69, with a great shot to save par on No. 18, to close out his play at the 2014 SEC Championship.
Mizzou Golf will learn its NCAA Championship fate Monday, May 5. The Golf Channel will broadcast the 2014 Men's Golf Selection Show at 9 a.m. CT during the Morning Drive. The Tigers are set to host the 2014 NCAA Men's Golf Columbia Regional Championships May 15-17, at The Club at Old Hawthorne.
