Columbia, Mo. -
No. 15 Missouri Golf concluded its fall campaign by firing a final round 280 (-4) to finish seventh at the 2012 Royal Oaks Intercollegiate in Dallas, Texas, on Tuesday.
The Royal Oaks Intercollegiate was played at the Royal Oaks Country Club. The par-71 course was spread over 7,068 yards and No. 16 Oklahoma State claimed the tournament title. OSU golfer Ian Davis and Iowa's Ian Vandersee shared medalist honors at seven-under-par.
The Tigers improved each round and finished just a shot behind SEC rival Texas A&M in the overall standings. Missouri opened with rounds of 290-283 on Monday before shooting that four-under-par score 280 this afternoon.
Jace Long (-4) once again led Missouri and finished sixth overall. An opening-round 77 slowed Long's chances at a tournament crown, but the senior responded nicely with rounds 64-68 to work his way back into the Top 10.
Teammate Emilio Cuartero finished second among Tiger performers and 39th overall with rounds of 70-72-75--217. Sophomore Ryan Zech (76-72-71--219) tied for 51st and Jacob Fair (74-75-71--220) was 56th. Hunter Kraus rounded out the Tiger competitors shooting 70-83-70--223.
Eight teams in this week's event were ranked among Golfstat's Top 50. Missouri defeated No. 29 Tulsa, No. 30 North Carolina and No. 44 Oklahoma. The club fell just short of No. 34 Texas A&M. Also ranked were the tournament champion Cowboys, runner-up New Mexico (No. 4 nationally) and No. 9 SMU, who finished fourth.
Missouri returns to action on Feb. 11-12 at The Farms Collegiate in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.
