NEW ORLEANS – With the fall golf season in the books, the Sun Belt Conference announced today that Georgia State’s Jonathan Grey has been named golfer of the month for October.

Grey shared low medalist honors to open the month at the Brickyard Collegiate, his second straight title. Grey fired rounds of 72, 67 and 69 to defeat eight golfers ranked in the top 100 in Golfstat. He had previously started his collegiate career with a win at the Mason Rudolph Championship hosted by Vanderbilt.

He followed that with a tie for 11th at the GSU hosted AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic. After opening with a 70, he shot rounds of 74 and 75.

He finished the month with a tie for 19th at the UNCG Bridgestone Collegiate, shooting rounds of 73, 75 and 73.

“I am extremely proud of Jonathan and he is well deserving of this award,” commented head coach Joe Inman. “I knew he was a talented player, but he definitely surprised us a little with a pair of wins and never finishing outside of the top 20 this fall. He is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to his bright future.” 

In four tournaments this fall, he has compiled a 71.17 scoring average, tops in the Sun Belt. He is ranked No. 31 in the country by GolfStat and No. 44 in the country by Golfweek.

Georgia State will head into the off-season until returning to the course for the SeaBest Seafood Invitational hosted by Jacksonville University on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass the first week of February.
