COLUMBIA — The Missouri men's golf team wrapped up its final round of golf and its season on Monday at the NCAA National Championship in Hutchinson, Kan. The Tigers finished the three-day event with a score of 19-over par (859) and placed 20th out of 30 teams.

The Tigers, No. 39 in the country, entered the national championship with the 27th seed. To reach the second stage at nationals, the Tigers had to finish in the top eight of the 30-team field after three rounds.

Missouri junior Ryan Zech finished in the top 10 individually at 3-under par (207) and in a tie for ninth. Senior Emilio Cuartero finished one stroke behind Zech at 2-under par (208) and in a tie for 15th.

The Tigers were unable to replicate their first-round success in the next two. Missouri shot 3-over par (283) in round one, good for 16th place.

In round two, which was delayed multiple times due to inclement weather, Missouri shot 9-over par (289). The Tigers shot 7-over par (287) in the final round and finished 14 strokes behind the cut.

The national championship appearance was Missouri's first since 2005. The second stage of the tournament, an eight-team match play bracket, begins on Tuesday.
