BIRMINGHAM, AL (July 19, 2016) – University of California golfer, Collin Morikawa has been named June’s Amateur of the Month by the Southern Golf Association after a stand-out month during which he earned the title at the Sunnehanna Amateur Championship and a T1 (losing during the second playoff hole) at the Air Capital Classic in Wichita, Kansas.

From La Canada Flintridge, California, the sophomore finished the tournament at 17-under-par and posted two rounds at 63 over the weekend of the tournament.

Winners of the SGA’s March-through-October award are determined by a blue-ribbon national panel of golf officials, coaches and journalists. Formerly named the National Amateur of the Month Award, it is now simply known as the Amateur of the Month Award as it has reached international status with presentations to players all over the world.

The SGA supports amateur golf at the highest level, including staging of the storied 100th Southern Amateur, which was held last week at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, as well as the 44th Southern Junior Championship in June at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin, Texas.
