Originally from Sioux Falls Jack Lundinr starts his junior year in the headliner of the Mizzou range. He competed in all six events last year: four in the regular season and two in the playoffs. Last season, Ludinr appeared in three consecutive under-par 54-hole event scoring and top-15 scoring events: Auburn Tiger Invitational, Hootie at Bulls Bay and MU Tiger Invitational.
Senior Charlie Croquet is ranked second for the Tigers. Crockett helped the Tigers win their third tag team title last season at the Hootie event in Bulls Bay after shooting all three under par to finish with a 7-under 209 and claim a share of fifth place and his first career top 5.
Representing the team in third place is a freshman Alfons Bondesson. Newcomer Bondesson is the 10th best amateur in all of Sweden, as well as first in the U18 age group and third in the U21 range. Going beyond borders, he is ranked No. 511 in the world according to the World Amateur Golf Rankings. His talent was undoubtedly on display in June when he clinched the 2021 Swedish Junior Championship (U21) title, after carding three of four par-or-better rounds to finish 5 under par.
Graduate student DJ Springer lands fourth place for the Black and Gold this week. A graduate transfer makes his first appearance for the Tigers. Springer is a two-time Alamo City Classic champion and is looking to make an instant impact for the Tigers.
To complete the range, a graduate student Tommy Boon. Boone capped off his senior year with a career-best 72.92 average. During the playoffs, Boone shot a career-low round and 54-hole event scores in the SEC Championship, with a 68 (-2) in the second round and 210 (E) overall, claiming a top 20.
Competing as an individual this weekend is second grade Dawson Meek. The Springfield native earned his first career top 20 finish at the MU Tiger Invitational, competing as an individual where he again posted back-to-back under-par rounds on the opening day.
