COLUMBIA — The Missouri women's golf team was in position. The Tigers were tied for the lead late in the final round of the Big 12 Championship on Sunday. Then Texas made a move, and Missouri couldn't keep pace.

The Missouri women’s golf team finished third in the Big 12 Championship, where the 109th-ranked Tigers pressured No. 20 Texas and No. 27 Texas A&M throughout the tournament at The Club at Old Hawthorne.

Madison Pressel and Nicole Vandermade each made eagles on par-4s to help the Longhorns pull away and best the Tigers by 8 strokes.

The freshmen led Missouri on Sunday. Freshman Taylor Gohn shot a 1-under-par 71 in the final round, finishing ninth overall to earn All-Tournament Team recognition. Freshman Kate Gallagher had a 72, her best round of the tournament.

The Tigers enjoyed the home course advantage, but were also careful not to overthink it.

“Because it is our home course, you can’t over analyze things when you already know what you’re going to do," said Marissa Cook, who shot a 74 to finish the tournament in 11th place. "You just turn yourself on autopilot and go."

The Tigers finished with a three-round total of 880, two shots better than Iowa State. The Cyclones entered the weekend ranked 15th in the nation, the Big 12’s top-ranked program.
