Columbia, Mo. -Mizzou Women's Golf, under the direction of head coach Stephanie Priesmeyer, is set for another challenging year through the 2014-15 season. The Tigers return four of their top five players this season, including Jess Meek, who finished among the top 10 at the 2014 SEC Championships and set the Mizzou All-Time freshman low stroke record last season. As a team, Mizzou set a school record with their 300.12 team stroke average, finishing the year with five top-10 finishes overall.
The Tigers are set to play five fall tournaments in 2014-15, including the return of the Johnie Imes Invitational at The Club at Old Hawthorne in September. Mizzou will continue with four spring tournaments before post season play begins with the SEC Championships in April.
"We are looking forward to the new golf season," head coach Stephanie Priesmeyer said. "We will be adding two exciting players to the roster and we return four out of our top five players from last year. We have built up our schedule by adding the Texas State, Florida State, and San Jose events, and we always love hosting The Johnie Imes at the Club at Old Hawthorne every fall."
Mizzou will open its fall season with the Chip-N Club Invitational in Lincoln, Neb. on Sept. 8. Hosted by the Huskers, Mizzou competed at the Chip-N Club in the 2012-13 season and earned a 2nd place finish, their first of three-consecutive top-three finishes that fall season.
Mizzou will continue play at the Cougar Classic in Charleston, S.C. for the second consecutive season beginning on Sept. 14 before returning to Columbia, Mo. to host the Johnie Imes Invitational. The annual Johnie Imes is held at The Club at Old Hawthorne, and welcomes some exciting competition for Mizzou. The Tigers have consistently performed well on their home course in the tournament, which is held in honor of the late Johnie Imes.
The Tigers will once again take part in the Mercedes Benz Collegiate, hosted by SEC foe Tennessee on Oct. 17-19 before closing the fall season in San Antonio, Texas at the Jim West Challenge, hosted by Texas State.
The spring season will open up in Tallahassee, Fla. with FSU Match Play. Currently ranked at No. 34 in the nation, Florida State University will host the competitive tournament Feb. 13-15. The Tigers will travel to the other end of the country for the Julie Inkster in San Jose, Calif. on Feb. 23.
Missouri will once again join forces with Kansas State to host the MountainView Collegiate March 20 in Tucson, Ariz. Last season the Tigers took third in the tournament, boasting three top-20 individual finishes.
Mizzou will close the regular season at the LSU Tiger Classic in March, hosted by the No. 25 LSU Tigers, before heading to Hoover, Ala. for the SEC Championships April 17-19.
