Emilio Cuartero won the Spanish Amateur title.
July 31, 2013
Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Golf senior Emilio Cuartero won the 2013 Spanish Amateur Championship by firing a 9-under-par 279 over 72 holes to earn a two-shot win over Mario Galiano (-7) at the Forest Hills Golf Club in Madrid, Spain.
Cuartero (-9) was steady throughout the four-day event, shooting 71-69-69-70 on the par 72 championship course. Cuartero was tied with Scott Fernandez (-7) entering the final round, but Cuartero finished 2-under-par, while Fernandez, a 2013 All-American at Iowa State and ranked among the Top 20 college golfers last season, slipped out of the Top Five with a 7-over 79 to finish at 2-under.
"I'm so excited for Emilio and what a great way to finish a strong summer by winning his country's amateur championship," Head Coach Mark Leroux said. "Emilio has played great golf all year and to win this title before his senior season gives him a lot of momentum heading into 2013."
Cuartero was second in scoring average at Mizzou last season (72.2) and is coming off a ninth-place finish at the NCAA Columbus Regional. He also claimed a victory at the 2013 Farms Collegiate in February and will be one of the top golfers in the Southeastern Conference in 2013-14.
Cuartero was also recently named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar by the Golf Coaches Association last week.
Missouri Golf opens its 2013-14 season on Sept. 1-2 at the Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate. The event, hosted by Mizzou, is played in Verona, N.Y., on the Kualuhyat Championship Course.
