Jace Long fired a school-record tying 10-under-par 62 to tie for medalist honors and lead the Missouri men's golf team at the 2011 NCAA Southeast Regional on Saturday afternoon in Ocala, Fla.

Long, the first Tiger to claim a top position at an NCAA regional, shot an incredible 29 on his first nine holes and finished the round with nine birdies, an eagle and just one bogey to advance to next week's NCAA championship set for May 31 to June 4 at Karsten Creek Golf Course in Stillwater, Okla.

Long's 206 tied for first place with Augusta State's Patrick Reed and North Carolina State's Mitchell Sutton.

Missouri finished sixth as a team at 858, finishing just two strokes behind fifth-place Arkansas to narrowly miss advancing. Florida won the 14-team team competition with an 846.
