COLUMBIA -- Mizzou Athletics announced its 2013-14 men's golf schedule on Friday and a pair of tournaments at The Club at Old Hawthorne, including the 2014 NCAA Columbia Regional (May 15-17), highlight a challenging slate.
Head Coach Mark Leroux's club will host three events in total next year starting with the season-opening Turning Stone-Tiger Intercollegiate (Sept. 1-2) in Verona, N.Y. The team then returns home to host the Columbia Regional Preview (Sept. 16-17) and will host the NCAA Columbia Regional in May.
Mizzou opens the spring season Feb. 23-25 at the Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, P.R. One of the country's top collegiate events, Alabama claimed the 2013 Puerto Rico Classic crown by seven shots over Oklahoma and Missouri will make its first trip to the event in 2014.
The challenging schedule continues at the Brandon Dunes Championship in Brandon, Ore., before returning to The Hootie at Bulls Bay event in South Carolina. Missouri finished fourth at the Bulls Bay tournament last season, knocking off six nationally-ranked programs.
The SEC Championship will be hosted once again in Sea Island, Ga (April 25-27).
