BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (April 2, 2014) – Stanford junior Patrick Rodgers has been named the Southern Golf Association’s National Amateur of the Month for March for the second time in his impressive collegiate career.

Rogers has won three tournaments in a row, including two in the month of March. He opened the month by successfully defending his title at the Southern Highlands Collegiate by two strokes in Las Vegas. Then he solidified his nomination for the award by leading Stanford to a runaway 20-stroke team victory in The Goodwin over USC and a strong field of West Coast powers. Rodgers won the individual title by 6 strokes with his 14-under 196 total at the Stanford G.C.

Rodgers won the award a year ago primarily on the strength of winning the 2013 Southern Highlands. This time, he dominated voting by the blue-ribbon national panel of golf journalists, officials and coaches, out-polling runnerup Ollie Schneiderjans of Georgia Tech, who scored his third title of the school year in the Valsopar Collegiate in Florida in March. Ollie has now been runnerup for the award twice in the past six months.

The coveted March-thru-October award, now in its 12th year, is one of many ways the SGA promotes and advances amateur golf, including its storied Southern Amateur, the 108th playing set for July at the exclusive Honors Course near Chattanooga.
