Men’s Golf in Sixth After Day One

Tucson, Ariz. – In a field that features 11 schools in the top 60 of the rankings nationally, the Missouri men’s golf team sits in sixth place of 18 schools overall after day one at the Arizona National Invitational Tournament.

With the second round suspended due to darkness with five holes to play, the Tigers are sixth with a -18 tally – three strokes ahead of SEC rival and No. 25 Texas A&M in seventh. No. 28 New Mexico leads the tournament at -35, followed by No. 6 Arizona State (-31) and No. 16 Arizona (-30).

In the first event of the spring season, senior Jack Lundin picked right up where he left off in the fall. Lundin, who entered the spring campaign ranked No. 55 nationally, is tied for sixth in the highly-competitive field at eight under. The senior carded nine birdies on the day to go with a pair of eagles as he sits in the top 10 through 31 holes.

Senior Charlie Crockett is in 21st at five under, sophomore Virgilio Paz ranks 28th at four under and junior Trevor Mierl is in 58th at even par.

Day two starts at 9:30 a.m. CT with the resumption of the second round before finishing the third and final round.
