DENVER, CO - NM State’s Pun Chanachai has been named Western Athletic Conference Women’s Golfer of the Month for September.

Chanachai, a sophomore from Bangkok, Thailand (The Demonstration School of Ramkhamhaeng), continued right where she left off last season, earning victories in both tournaments she entered and leading the Aggies to a pair of team titles as well. In the season-opening Hobble Creek Fall Classic, she shot a 9-under-par 204 to finish first, posting all three rounds in the 60s. She followed that up with a win at the Col. Wollenberg’s Ram Classic, shooting an 11-under-par 205 which included a WAC-record 9-under-par 63 in the tournament’s second round. She is currently ninth in the Golfstat Cup rankings and 15th in the Golfweek Individual Rankings.
