Question

Special US Amateur Clampett’s Corner

August 21, 2018

Bobby’s Answer

Viktor Hovland, of Norway, capped a dominant week of golf with a 6-and-5 victory over Devon Bling on Sunday in the 36-hole final of the 118th U.S. Amateur Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links, a convincing win that was highlighted by an amazing recovery from the iceplant on hole #4 in the opening 18 of the 36-hole final.  I was on site and captured some rare video that I thought you would enjoy watching.  If you want more highlights, go to usga.org.

“I always thought I had a pretty good vocabulary, but I’m lost for words,” said Hovland, whose lone previous victory was the Valspar Collegiate event in 2018. “It’s really special. I’ve only won once before, and to win the U.S. Amateur as my second win is really cool. I just hope it’s the start of something great.”

Hovland, 20, who is No. 5 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) and a junior at Oklahoma State University, tied the record for the fewest holes needed to earn the Havemeyer Trophy (104) since the current match-play format was adopted in 1979.
