Mizzou Links for Thursday, May 19
Golf comes to a close in Norman.
After a successful 2021-2022 campaign, making the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2018, the Mizzou Men’s Golf team’s season came to an end on Wednesday in the Norman Regional.
As a team, the Tigers finished 10th at the three-day event — not enough to make the Top 5 cut to qualify for the NCAA Championships. Overall, the Tigers shot 21-over par with a score of 294-296-295 in the three days. Auburn and Ole Miss advanced, while future SEC members Oklahoma and Texas did as well in the Norman Regional.
Individually, here’s how the Tigers finished, with Yuta Tsai leading the way — his eighth top-20 finish of the season.
What a year it’s been.

Mizzou’s 2021-2022 season comes to an end with four total team wins and two individual titles on the year. For more, check it out on MUTigers.com.
And in MLB, former Mizzou Tiger great Max Scherzer (now of the NY Met) got the win over the St. Louis Cardinals after going 5.2 innings with one earned run and four strikeouts, but left the game early with an injury after throwing 87 pitches.

The official injury report was described as left side discomfort, and he will undergo more tests — according to Anthony DiComo from MLB.com.
UPDATE: The Mets are saying Max Scherzer left tonight’s game due to left side discomfort. He’ll have tests done tomorrow.

Here’s hoping for the best for Max. I always enjoy watching him pitch.
