The Missouri men's golf team finished 13th out of 14 teams at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate in Dallas. The two-day tournament, which concluded Tuesday, was the team's final tournament of the fall.

Missouri shot 873, 21-over-par, during the three-round tournament, well behind champion Texas A&M's 22-under-par 830. The Aggies and second-place Duke, 21-under-par, finished more than a dozen shots ahead of the rest of the field.

M.J. Daffue, a senior at Lamar University, won the tournament at 11-under-par shooting 65-70-67—202. He was playing in the tournament as an individual, so his scores did not count for Lamar's team total.

Missouri low scorer was junior Jace Long who tied for 24th place, shooting 72-75-67—214. He was the only Tiger who placed in the top 50 out of 77 golfers that competed.

Royal Oaks Country Club, a par-71 course, hosted the tournament and was originally laid out by J. Press Maxwell, whose father designed Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.

The men's golf team resumes play in February at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate in Hawaii.
