The Missouri men's golf team captured its third tournament win of the 2013-14 season in Bandon, Ore., on Tuesday, topping the leaderboard of the 15-team Bandon Dunes Championship.

Missouri finished the three-day tournament with a team score of 863 strokes. The Tigers' 11-over par score was two better than runner-up UC Davis.

The Tigers excelled in the first two rounds of the tournament. Entering Tuesday's final round, Missouri's team score of 3-under par was 13 strokes better than the rest of the field. The lead helped the Tigers prevail in spite of their 14-over-par score Tuesday.

Emilio Cuartero, senior, was Missouri's best golfer in the competition. He shot a 1-over-par 230, which tied for the fourth-best individual score in the tournament. Wilson Sundvold, sophomore, shot 4-over and finished tied for seventh.

Missouri's season kicked off in September and continued until a winter hiatus. Their first tournament of the spring was at the Puerto Rico Classic in February, where the Tigers finished tied for ninth. 

This week's win in Oregon was Missouri's first of the spring. Its next tournament is The Hootie at Bulls Bay in Awendaw, S.C., which begins on March 23.
