COLUMBIA — Missouri men’s golfers Jace Long and Emilio Cuartero are headed into postseason play after being selected to participate in the NCAA Bowling Green regional set for May 17 to 19 at The Club at Olde Stone in Bowling Green, Ky.
Long and Cuartero are the seventh and eighth individual qualifiers for the Missouri program. The last Tiger to qualify as an individual was Peter Malnati in 2009.
Long, a member of this season's All-Big 12 Conference men’s golf team as a junior, has earned a top-25 finish in each tournament he competed in this season, including two winning performances.
Cuartero, a sophomore, has earned five top-10 finishes and has seven top-25 efforts overall, including a victory at the John Dallio Memorial.
"It is unfortunate that the team cannot compete for a championship, but I know Jace and Emilio will represent Mizzou very well,” Tigers coach Mark Leroux said in a release.
The NCAA will hold six 54-hole regionals with the low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each advance to the NCAA set for May 29 to June 3 at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
