Jack Lundin Claims Individual Title at The Hootie at Bulls Bay

Jack Lundin

Senior Jack Lundin of the University of Missouri men’s golf team lifted his first trophy of the season and the third of his career, finishing first at The Hootie at Bulls Bay on Tuesday.

After posting a third-round tally of 70, including a birdie on his final hole of the day to move into a three-way tie for first, Lundin earned the crown during a playoff. The senior secured individual medalist honors over Frankie Harris of South Carolina on the third hole of the playoff with LSU’s Jay Mendell being eliminated on the first hole.

Overall, Lundin finished with a six-under 210 (71-69-70) over the three-day tournament. He recorded four birdies on Tuesday, including his tying three on the par-four ninth hole (his 18th of the day), and 13 over the course of the 54-hole tournament.

The tournament title for Lundin marks the third time Lundin has finished with the best individual score at a tournament – and his first outright championship after the playoff victory – following titles during his junior campaign at the 2022 Turning Stone Intercollegiate and the 2022 Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate. Lundin, who entered the week ranked No. 24 in the latest NCAA rankings, has recorded four-straight top-five finishes and six overall in nine tournaments this season.

Overall, the Tigers improved their team ranking by two spots for the second-straight day, finishing sixth of 15 teams over three days with a one-over tally of 865 (299-280-286).

Senior Charlie Crockett (77-68-73) and sophomore Alfons Bondesson (73-71-74) tied for 28th at +2. Junior Trevor Mierl (77-77-70) matched Lundin for the best score by a Tiger on Tuesday with a two-under, followed by Adam Miller (78-76-71) at one-under and Dagbjartur Sigurbrandsson (79-72-72) at even-par.

LSU won the team title at 15-under, followed by New Mexico (-9) and Purdue (-7).

The Tigers are back in action in two weeks, hosting the Tiger Intercollegiate at The Club at Old Hawthorne. The two-day tournament is set to begin on Monday, April 8.
