Snyder’s Freshman Record Paces Mizzou Day Two of NCAA Regional

Snyder’s Freshman Record Paces Mizzou Day Two of NCAA Regional

Stanford, Calif.Brock Snyder made his NCAA Regional debut a memorable one, setting the program’s freshman record as the University of Missouri men’s golf team posted its second-best score in regional history on day two in Stanford.

Playing in just his seventh round of his rookie campaign, Snyder carded a four-under 66 to lead the Tigers. Back-to-back birdies on his sixth and seventh holes of the day allowed the freshman to make the turn with a two-under 33. On the back nine, he added three birdies against his lone bogey of the day on the par-three third to secure his record-setting 66.

Snyder’s 66 is tied for the third-lowest score by any player in program history during an NCAA Regional (tied with Hayden Buckley in 2018 and Ross Steelman in 2021). It also marks the best score by a Mizzou freshman, topping the previous standard of 67, set last season by Alfons Bondesson. Snyder’s 66 is also three strokes better than his previous low tally.

Overall, the Tigers carded a four-under during the second day of action in California – tied for the fifth-best score of the 14-team field on Tuesday. The team’s 276 is also Mizzou’s best score since also posting a 276 at its home course in 2014 with only the 2011 team registering a lower round in its NCAA Regional history (274).

Senior Charlie Crockett posted his second-straight round under par, posting a one-under 69 after his opening-day 67 to move to -4. Crockett sits in 14th place and enters the final day of action two strokes back of earning an individual bid to the NCAA Finals. After posting eight pars and two bogeys in his first 10 holes of the day, Crockett recorded three birdies against zero bogeys over the final eight holes to charge back up the leaderboard.

Senior Jack Lundin (70-70) is 33rd at even par, followed by Dagbjartur Sigurbrandsson (76-71) and Trevor Mierl (73-76).

The final day of action tees off on Wednesday morning with Snyder leading things off at 11:25 a.m. CT.
