LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Missouri State’s men’s golf team finished in fifth place at the 21st Annual UALR/First Tee Classic. The Bears shot 306-286-319—911 and were able to hold Monday’s position in the tournament and remained in fifth of 14 schools.

Missouri State’s second-round 286, along with McNeese State’s 286 in the second-round, tied as the tournament low for a single team round.

Louisiana-Monroe (287-297-305—889) won the tournament, behind top-25 finishes by four Warhawks’ golfers.

Sam Houston State (295-293-305—893), McNeese State (300-286-309—895), and Lipscomb (301-289-315—905) were the only other schools to record totals lower than Missouri State.

Senior Nick Langley (72-69-82—223) and sophomore Joey Johnson (77-69-78—224) led the Bears and finished in ties for seventh and ninth, respectively. This is the first tournament since September’s John Dalio Memorial where two Bears placed in the top-10.

Both Langley and Johnson carded a second-round 69, which remained the single-round tournament low.

Brik Brauburger (79-74-81—231), Eric Straub (80-74-81—235), and Mitch Mather (78-78-84—240) helped place Missouri State in fifth, the best MSU finish since ending the Dalio Memorial in second.


 

 

Langley had the tournament lead heading into Tuesday’s final round, but was unable to hold on through the final 18.

Sam Houston State’s Albert Miner (72-70-74—216) claimed the individual crown after recording a tie for the third-round low. McNeese State’s Martin Eriksson (72-71-75) and Louisiana-Monroe’s Greg Smail (69-74-76—219) round out the top-three.

Missouri State returns to the course next week at the Memphis Intercollegiate. The two-day tournament will be played on March 31-April 1.
