BIRMINGHAM, AL (November 21, 2016) -- Ole Miss sophomore Braden Thornberry, currently ranked by the Scratch Players World Amateur Rankings as 74th in the Nation, has been named Amateur of the Month (October) by the Southern Golf Association (SGA).

Thornberry had a stellar month, taking the title at the Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational and finished T4 at the Marquette Intercollegiate.

In addition to taking the title at the AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic, Thornberry’s tournament total for the event of 18-under 198 broke the three-round school record of 203, while his second-round score of 8-under- par 66 set not only the school record but was also a career low.

Winners of the SGA’s monthly award are determined by a blue-ribbon national panel of golf officials, coaches and journalists. Now in its 14th season, notable recipients have been Bill Haas, Michelle Wie, Hunter Mahan, Ryan Moore, J. B. Holmes, Webb Simpson, Rhys Davies, Kyle Stanley, Kevin Fortin- Simard, Rickie Fowler, Danny Lee, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Alice Hewson, and more recently Lee McCoy & Aaron Wise.
