Ole Miss men’s golfer Sarut Vongchaisit was recognized as the Co-SEC Men’s Golfer of the Week, the conference announced Wednesday. Vongchaisit is the fourth Rebel that has received weekly recognition from the Southeastern Conference in the 2022-23 season.
The honor follows the senior’s tied for 1st place finish at the Mossy Oak Collegiate where he found success and accomplished new career bests in low-18 score (64), low-54 score (203), and best individual finish. Vongchaisit’s 64 (-8) round-score is tied for third in men’s golf program history for the lowest single-round score and his total 203 (-13) score is tied for fifth in program history for the lowest three-round score.
Vongchaisit led the field in birdies, chipping in 20 through his three rounds. The Rebel set a new Mossy Oak Collegiate individual record, beating Gordon Sargent’s record of 204 (-12) from 2022. His second-round score of 64 tied for the lowest round shot in the Mossy Oak Collegiate.
During the second round, the senior was on fire, making a whopping 10 birdies to achieve a round score of 64 (-8). Starting out the second round, Vongchaisit made three consecutive birdies on Holes 1-3 and then followed with five consecutive birdies on Holes 6-10. This gave Vongchaisit the edge he needed to keep the lead and take home the hardware as co-medalist, tying with Ryan Eshleman of Auburn. This is Vongchaisit’s first individual title honor in his career.
The Bangkok, Thailand native’s run gave Ole Miss a 4th place finish with an 835 (-29) overall score – a season-best tournament total against par for the Rebels.
Vongchaisit and No. 20 Ole Miss conclude their regular season schedule next week, April 10-12, at the Mason Rudolph Championship in Nashville, Tennessee.
