Thornberry in Contention at All-American Intercollegiate


HUMBLE, Texas—The Ole Miss men’s golf team competed in their second round of the new year at the All-American Intercollegiate at the Golf Club of Houston Saturday afternoon. Ole Miss fell two places in the field, sitting in fifth place after a 3-over day (291), leaving them 9-under for the tournament. No. 8 Auburn remains in first after a 17-under round (271) putting them 31-under over two days.

Braden Thornberry was the leading force for the Rebels in the second round after working a 3-under 69 for the second day in a row. This score was made up of 15 pars and three birdies. He is now in contention heading into the final round as he sits in a three-way tie for sixth place.

Senior Kerry Sweeney followed behind Thornberry with an even par round, consistent on both the front and the back. Both nines included a bogey and a birdie to put himself in a 10-way tie for 25th place. Sophomore Chip Getz shot 73 in the second round to land 10 spots behind Sweeney. Getz was able to card five birdies, the most by a Rebel on day two, to post the 1-over round and leave him in a six-way tie for 35th place going into the final round.

While Josh Seiple paced Ole Miss in the opening round with a 5-under 67, his second round started off much differently. The junior went 5-over in his first nine holes, but despite his consistent even back nine, his front ultimately decided his score. Seiple stands in a six-way tie for 41st place.

Ole Miss will return to the All-American Intercollegiate for the final round tomorrow teeing off at 9:50 a.m. CT.
