MU MEN’S GOLF: The Tigers opened the season with a victory at the Missouri Intercollegiate Tournament at the Club at Porto Cima in Lake Ozark. Juniors John Kelly and Tyler Dunn tied for the individual championship with a three-round total of 211.

Kelly later defeated Dunn (who was competing as an individual) in a playoff.

Missouri beat runner-up Lindenwood by 46 strokes.

“Obviously, it is always good to start the season with a win,” coach Mark Leroux said. “This was a good tournament for us and we will look to use the momentum from this win as we continue through the year.”
