Kaua’i, Hawaii—The Ole Miss men’s golf team will travel to Kaua’i, Hawaii as they look to defend their Warrior Princeville Invitational title at the Princeville Makai Golf Club, Oct. 29-31.

The three-day tournament will be hosted by the University of Hawaii and will feature 19 Division I men’s golf programs, competing for 54 holes on a 7,223-yard, par 72 course, beginning Sunday, Oct. 29 at 1 p.m. CT.

The Rebels enter their final tournament of the fall season coming off of a second-place finish at the FAMC Intercollegiate at The Grove in Nashville, Tennessee after shooting 4-under (287-285-288—860).

Junior Braden Thornberry has led Ole Miss in every tournament this fall beginning with his eighth career individual victory at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate to claim the most individual tournament titles in Ole Miss Men's Golf history. He then went on to place fifth in Milwaukee after finishing even par for the tournament at Erin Hills. In the Rebels’ most recent tournament, Thornberry defended his title at the FAMC Intercollegiate after turning in a 7-under 209, breaking his own tournament record, 5-under (211), which he set in 2016.

Junior Josh Seiple will join the Rebels on the island to mark his fourth appearance this season. Seiple found his best finish, tied for 11th, at the Shoal Creek Invitational, carding a 1-under 215 to mark the fourth top-20 finish of his career. Coming off of a solid opening round 70 (-2) at the FAMC Intercollegiate to lead the tournament after the first day, Seiple will look to take his Day 1 mentality into Sunday.

Fellow junior Beau Briggs will enter the lineup again this weekend, as he has become a large contributor to Ole Miss’ success this year. Briggs started the season off posting a 219 at the Shoal Creek Invitational with the help of a career-best 69 (-3) in his second round. In Briggs’ latest appearance at the FAMC Intercollegiate, he continued to find personal success as he carded a new career-low 214 to mark the first top-five finish of his career.

Senior Kerry Sweeney and sophomore Brody Blackmon are back in action this weekend for their third appearances of the season. Sweeney began his senior campaign carding a 7-over 223 at Shoal Creek and bring experience to Hawaii as he helped the Rebels capture last year’s Warrior Princeville Invitational crown. Blackmon took the leading spot in the individual’s category at Erin Hills after posting a 74-76-76—226, a result of seven birdies that earned him a spot in the lineup at the FAMC Intercollegiate. There he shot 7-over, landing in a tie for 28th.

Also taking their games off the mainland will be sophomores Chip Getz and Ben Reichert, who will compete as individuals. Both Rebels will be playing in their third tournament of the fall.

Malloy’s Minute

“We’re extremely excited to get back to Hawaii to defend our title. The guys have great vibes on this course and certainly have shown that they enjoy playing in this event. I know that we want to end the fall season on a high note and come home with the tournament title again.”

Ole Miss at the Warrior Princeville Invitational

The Rebels will look to defend their title after posting 3-under (277-276-278—831) last season to claim the victory by 22 strokes over Sam Houston State. This 831 total, tied for the second lowest score for a tournament in school history, was made possible by Thornberry’s first-place individual finish. Thornberry carded 13-under (71-65-67—203), to tie for the third lowest individual score in Ole Miss Golf history. Seiple and Sweeney followed behind Thornberry with top-20 finishes.

Princeville Makai Golf Course
