Thornberry wins Patriot All-America
Ole Miss golfer Braden Thornberry (Olive Branch,
Miss.) played the Patriot All-America
carrying a golf bag honoring Spc. Charles E.
He captured the unique event, honoring
and wounded soldiers at Arizona's Wigwam resort
today, posting a final round 71 to finish at 2-
211. Adam Wood, the third round leader from
University (final round 73) and David Kocher (final
round 69) tied for second at 212.
It was the second round that separated
Thornberry, where only two players in the field
managed a round of 70 while Thornberry posted a
67, which proved to be low round for the
tournament. He birdied five of six holes on the
inward nine on Wednesday to put himself in
position to end 2015 with a win on Thursday. An
even-par final round of 71 at Arizona’s Wigwam
Resort gave him a one-stroke win over third
round leader Adam Wood of Duke University.
