Day One Results

Missouri Golf opened its 2013 fall campaign in a big way, racing out to a 17-shot lead after 36 holes of play at the 2013 Tiger Turning Stone Intercollegiate in Verona, N.Y. on Sunday.

Played on the par-72 Kaluhyat Golf Course in upstate New York, Missouri had all four of its scorers in the Top 11 (individually) and heads into Monday’s finale 17 shots better than second place McNeese State.

Junior Ryan Zech (-6) leads the Tigers and is second overall. The Kearney, Mo., native opened the day with a 4-under 68 and shot 70 in his second round to stand just two shots behind Andrew Bailey (-8) of Cleveland State.

Zech is two shots in front of Mizzou redshirt sophomore Wilson Sundvold. Sundvold, who shot consecutive 2-under-par 70s, is fourth overall and in position for his first career Top 10 finish.

Senior Emilio Cuartero and freshman Euan Walker round out the Tigers in the Top 11. Cuartero opened with a 3-under-par 69 and finished with a 74, while Walker, a newcomer from Troon, Scotland, shot 76-68 to cap the day in 11th place, even-par for the tournament.

Rounding out the results for Missouri was senior Hunter Kraus, who shot 74-76 to tie for 31st, while newcomer Mike Wooten is 58th with rounds of 80-79.

Play at the 2013 Tiger Turning Stone concludes on Monday. Play begins at 7 a.m. CT.
