COLUMBIA -- Mizzou Golf knocked off six nationally-ranked programs en route to a fourth-place finish at the 2013 Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate on Tuesday afternoon in Awendaw, SC.
Head Coach Mark Leroux's squad the Tigers used steady play across the lineup and placed four individuals among the Top 35 to earn key regular-season wins over No. 15 LSU, No. 21 Auburn, No. 23 Clemson, No. 26 Texas A&M, No. 32 South Carolina and No. 50 Augusta State.
Senior Jace Long led Missouri once again with a tie for 17th. The Dixon, Missouri native shot steady rounds of 76-70-76 and earned his seventh consecutive Top 20 finish of the year.
Ryan Zech was Missouri's top player on Tuesday, shooting an even-par 72. A sophomore from Kearney, Missouri, Zech rebounded nicely from an opening-round 85 to finish his final 36 holes 2-under-par (85-70-72). Zech was tied with fellow Tiger Jacob Fair, who shot 73-78-76 to tie for 33rd overall.
