Nov. 1, 2013
Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Men's Golf heads to Kiawah, S.C., to compete in the Wendy's Kiawah Classic Sunday through Tuesday, Nov. 3-5. The Tigers will be looking to end their fall season on a high note, as this is their final tournament before spring play begins in February.
The annual tournament is hosted by Charleston Southern University and played at Turtle Point Golf Course. The par 72 course was designed by legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus and is ranked 48th on Golf Digest's list of 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses. The 18-team tournament field includes Charleston Southern, Campbell, Creighton, Elon University, George Washington, Jacksonville State, Marquette, Minnesota, Presbyterian, Radford, Richmond, South Carolina, Towson, Western Kentucky, Winthrop, Wisconsin and USC Upstate.
Cuartero will once again shoot first for Mizzou. The senior recently played at The Spirit International tournament in Houston, Texas. The Spaniard represented his native country in a tournament that pitted the top amateurs from 20 different countries against each other. In his most recent outing for Mizzou, Cuartero tied for 14th.
Shooting second for the Tigers is Kraus. He is coming off his best performance of the season at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate. In his native state, the senior captain finished in a tie for 18th and shot 2-under-par on the tournament.
Walker has been a consistent third shooter for the men's golf team this season. The freshman struggled a little bit at the Tigers' last tournament in Tennessee, but on average is one of only two Tiger golfers shooting below par on the season.
Sundvold will be making his fourth appearance in Mizzou's starting lineup and will shoot fourth in South Carolina. The Columbia, Mo., native's top finish was a tie for seventh at the Turning Stone tournament that kicked off the 2013-14 season.
Rounding out the lineup is Zech. The junior is currently averaging close to 72 strokes per round and shot his best score of 8-under-par at Turning Stone where he took second.
Eighteen holes will be played each day with tee times beginning in the morning. Live scoring can be found at Golfstat.com. For tournament updates and more information on Missouri Golf, follow mutigers.com and @MizzouMensGolf.
