Missouri bowed out of the NCAA Golf Championship on Monday, shooting a final round 287 and finishing its week at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kan., in 20th place at 19-over par.

The Tigers had hoped for a top-eight finish and a spot in the match-play portion of the tournament, but they left content with what they accomplished this season.

“It was a good year,” senior Emilio Cuartero said. “We made the national championship, and that was our main goal. We also wanted to win our regional, and we did that. The fact that we made it to the national championship and finished around 20th is pretty good.”

Ryan Zech played the best of any Missouri golfer at Prairie Dunes, shooting rounds of 70, 69 and 68. At 3 under, he finished in the top 10 of the individual championship.

Cuartero also played well, shooting rounds of 67, 72 and 69, finishing 1 shot behind his teammate.

Stanford leads by 9 strokes at 13 under.
