The Missouri men’s golf team shot a final round 295, the second best score of the day, to finish fifth overall at the Big 12 Championship in Hutchinson, Kan. The fifth place finish by Mizzou is the school’s best at the Big 12 Championship since 2005. It also equaled Missouri’s best finish at Prairie Dunes Country Club in the Big 12 era, tying the fifth-place showing in 2002.
Stuart Ballingall (74-73-68-73–288) led Missouri at the tournament. The junior from Norwich, United Kingdom, shot 73 on Wednesday to move into a tie for fourth place. Emilio Cuartero and Jace Long also finished among the Top 25 at the league championship.
