Sept. 27, 2011
Columbia, Mo. -
Freshman Ryan Zech wasted little time making an impact for the Mizzou Golf program at the collegiate level, finishing seventh overall at the 2011 Notre Dame Gridiron Classic in South Bend, Ind.
The Kearney, Mo., native fired rounds of 71-71-73--215 to finish just five shots out of first and 5-over-par at the 12-team event. The 2011 Notre Dame Gridiron Classic was played at the par-70 Warren Golf Course. The University of Houston and St. Mary's (Calif.) tied for the tournament title. Texas-Arlington's Paul McConnell won the event by one shot over Houston's James Ross. Missouri finished sixth overall, three shots behind the host Fighting Irish.
Missouri remained in the upper division this week thanks to Top 20 finishes from Zech, Emilio Cuartero and Jace Long. Zech made his collegiate debut with back-to-back 71s and was fifth heading into Tuesday, before his final round 73 solidified his Top 10 placing.
Cuartero shot an even-par 70 on Tuesday to finish tied for 15th. The Lleida, Spain, native opened 73-76 on Monday and was tied for 35th before recording one of the top-four rounds of the day.
Long (Dixon, Mo.) was again steady in his third tournament. He opened the event with a 1-under-par 69 and finished 74-77--220 to tie for 19th. Long now has three consecutive Top 20 finishes to start his junior campaign, including a win at the 2011 Michigan Wolverine Intercollegiate (Sept. 12-13).
Missouri returns to action Oct. 8-9 at the John Dallio Memorial in Burr Ridge, Ill.
