Hunter Kraus returns home to compete in the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate.
Oct. 9, 2013
Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Men's Golf travels to Jonesborough, Tenn., Oct. 11-13, to compete in the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate. At the 2012 event, three Tigers finished in the Top 20 individually to lead Mizzou to the team title.
The tournament is hosted by East Tennessee State University and will once again be played at Blackthorn Club. The par 72, 7,147-yard course was designed by legendary course designer Arthur Hills, twice the Golf Digest "Architect of the Year." Other teams competing in the tournament include Army, Coastal Carolina, ETSU, Furman, No. 23 Kent State, Memphis, Penn State, Tennessee, Villanova, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and UNC Wilmington.
The Tigers slipped back in the team standings during their last outing at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate, but are looking to get back on track at this weekend's event. Emilio Cuartero, Ryan Zech, Euan Walker, Wilson Sundvold and Hunter Kraus will be competing in the starting lineup for Missouri.
Senior captain Cuartero is shooting first for the Tigers. The native of Lleida, Spain, finished third at the 2012 Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate event. In his last outing at Shoal Creek, Cuartero finished tied for 24th and currently leads the team in all statistical categories.
Kearney, Mo., native, Zech, will go second for Mizzou. The junior has started in every tournament this season. Zech's top finish on the year came at the Turning Stone Intercollegiate where he took second.
Golfing third is Walker. The freshman has been impressive for Mizzou, finishing each of his tournaments inside the Top 25.
Sundvold returns to the starting lineup and will shoot fourth. The redshirt sophomore started the season off strong by tying for seventh at Turning Stone and will be looking to compete at that same level in Tennessee.
Shooting fifth is the Tennessee native Kraus. The senior captain finished 17th at last year's event. Kraus' top finish from this season was at the Columbia Regional Preview where he shot a career-best round score of 67 and tied for 22nd.
Eighteen holes will be played each day of the tournament and live scoring can be found at GolfStat.com. On Friday and Saturday, each pairing group will tee off from hole No. 1 beginning 8:30 a.m. On Sunday, half the field will tee off from hole No. 1 at 8:30 a.m. and the other half will tee off at hole No. 10 around 9 a.m.
