Columbia, Mo. - Missouri Golf will host the 2014 NCAA Men's Golf Columbia Regional, May 15-17, and the Tigers will have a pair of All-SEC award winners in their lineup as Emilio Cuartero was named Second Team All-SEC and freshman standout Euan Walker was named to the All-Freshman squad Thursday morning by the league coaches.

It's the second consecutive year Head Coach Mark Leroux's club has enjoyed multiple All-SEC award recipients in its lineup. Last season, Jace Long was named All-SEC, while Hunter Kraus was the Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

"I'm very excited for Emilio and Euan to earn this recognition," Head Coach Mark Leroux said. "Emilio was incredibly steady for us all year and Euan is one of the top young golfers in this conference. This is the premier golf conference in the country and I am really proud of the way our program has developed. Obviously we are very excited for this weekend's event and excited for the future of Mizzou Golf with four starters coming back next season."

Cuartero finished ninth at the 2014 SEC Championships (April 25-27), shooting 4-under-par through the 54-hole event. He finished just one shot out of the Top Five. For the year, Cuartero led Mizzou in scoring average, shooting 71.1 and he won the 2013 Columbia Regional Preview event last fall. He finished the year with six Top 10 placings and never finished outside of the Top 30 in his 10 starts.

Walker, a freshman from Troon, Scotland, was second on the club in scoring average (72.5) and recorded four Top 20 finishes as a rookie. His top finish came at the Columbia Regional Preview where he tied for second with a 6-under-par score. Walker finished fourth in the SEC among freshmen in scoring average and finished under par three times in 10 events.

 

 

Missouri Golf returns to action next week (May 15-17) at The Club at Old Hawthorne as the Tigers host the NCAA Columbia Regional. The Columbia Regional field is loaded with the nation's top teams as the 14-team field includes nine clubs ranked inside Golfstat's Top 50. No. 2 Oklahoma State is the top seed at the Columbia Regional. Missouri, which is seeded eighth in the regional, is ranked No. 46 nationally.

Admission to the event is free to the public.
