The summer of Thornberry continues. Ole Miss junior Braden Thornberry teed off Thursday afternoon in the U.S. Open.

The Olive Branch native is one of countless golfers over par at Shinnecock Hills.  Thornberry carded 4 bogeys and 5 pars on the front nine. He bounced back on the back nine with a birdie and a couple bogeys.

+6 (76) for the day sounds bad in most tournaments, but this course is known for high scores. Braden is ahead of 13 major champions on the leaderboard, including Bubba Watson (+7), Phil Mickelson (+7), Tiger Woods (+8), Jordan Spieth (+8), Jason Day (+9), and Rory McIlroy (+10).
