Columbia, Mo. -
Jace Long recorded his eighth career victory and the Missouri men’s golf program earned a 19-shot win after the final round of play at the 2012 Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate in Verona, N.Y. on Monday.
The 54-hole Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate was played on the Kaluhyat Course in Verona, N.Y., and Missouri served as the tournament host. It’s the second time Missouri has claimed the tournament crown. The Tigers won the inaugural event in 2009 while Purdue won in 2010 and Baylor won in 2011.
A senior from Dixon, Mo., Long was dominant all weekend, shooting three consecutive sub-70 scores of 66-66-69—201 to win by 10 shots over Antoine LeSaux of Louisville. The All-American opened his round with a birdie on the first hole and then had three consecutive birdies on holes 4-6 to win medalist honors.
Hunter Kruas (70-74-71—215) continued his strong play on Monday as well, shooting a 1-under-par 71 to finish third. It was the top career finish for the Memphis, Tenn., native, who also earned his first career Top Five.
Junior Emilio Cuartero (68-75-74—217) also finished in the Top 10 shooting a 2-over-par 74. He finished in eighth overall, one stroke ahead of freshman Jacob Fair (72-72-74--218) who tied for 12th. Ryan Zech (79-71-69—219) closed out the Tiger scorers by finishing 19th. The sophomore finished with a 3-under-par 69.
Tommie Wuennenberg was the final Tiger in action competing as an individual. He shot a final round 78 to tie for 62nd.
Missouri returns to action Sept. 16-18 at the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Burlington, Iowa.
