WEST POINT, Miss. - The Ole Miss men's golf team fired an 11-under par 277 to claim the Cameron Trophy over Mississippi State in the inaugural Magnolia Cup at Old Waverly Golf Club on Friday. The Cameron Trophy is the college competition of the Cup format. Mississippi State finished two strokes behind the Rebels with a 279 on the afternoon.

The Magnolia Cup Trophy went to the MSU alumni. The 18-hole event boasted alumni from each school playing along side the student-athletes of both institutions. MSU alums won with a round of 230.

The Magnolia Cup serves as a fundraising event to support both MSU and Ole Miss golf programs. The golf outing at the par-72 Old Waverly GC course raised in the neighborhood of around $20,000 for the programs.

"I am extremely proud of our team," said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross. "All four of our scores were under par. I was very proud of Jamie Howarth. He shot a 67 in his first collegiate tournament and had a very strong day on the course. Overall it was just a great day for the Ole Miss program."

Howarth led the Rebels shooting a 36-31--67, while junior Kyle Ellis was second for Ole Miss with a 33-36--69. Senior Derek Abel and junior Callum Macaulay were right behind with Abel shooting a 35-35--70 and Macaulay a 36-35--71. Junior Chris Rogers carded a 37-37--74 and freshman Will Roebuck rounded out the Rebel players with a 38-40--78.

Michael McKnight of Mississippi State was the top individual performer. McKnight shot a 33-32--65 on the afternoon.

Next up Ole Miss will travel to Nashville, Tenn., on Friday, September 30, for the Mason Rudolph Championships.
