The Missouri men’s golf team is in action for the first time in nearly five months, competing at the Colleton River Collegiate in Bluffton, South Carolina on Monday and Tuesday.
The tournament is set to begin at 7:15 a.m. CT on Monday morning, teeing off a day of 36 holes. The schools then wrap up with a round three on Tuesday morning with the first group teeing off at 6:45 a.m. CT.
Of the 12 schools competing, Missouri is one of five teams placed in the top 50 in the latest Golfstat rankings. The No. 46 Tigers are joined by No. 21 Kansas State, No. 24 Georgia Southern, No. 25 Cincinnati, No. 28 Ohio State, Indiana, Iowa State, Memphis, Michigan State, Minnesota, Penn State and Rutgers.
The tournament is set for Colleton River Club with the par-72 course measuring 7.085 yards long.
The men’s golf team looks to continue where it left off in the fall when it returns to action this week. The Tigers won one team title during the fall campaign, while adding two additional runner-up finishes. Junior Jack Lundin also added an individual crown at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate, while rookie Antonio Safa posted back-to-back top-five finishes in just his second and third collegiate events to earn SEC Freshman of the Week honors on Oct. 20.
