Andy Ogletree turns rout into victory in US Amateur final - was in danger of being blown out of the US Amateur final. He kept his poise — and his confidence — and came back to win, rallying to beat John Augenstein, 2 and 1, at Pinehurst, N.C.

Beggars belief that Ben Schmidt is only a reserve. Ranked 8 in the world and holder of Brabazon Trophy (English Open Amateur stroke play Champion) Can only believe that “the blazers” did not want two 16 year olds in the side.

Before they were famous.....just looked at a photo of Jamie Lovemark, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Billy Horschel at the 2007 Walker Cup.

Since the photo was taken, they have combined to win 38 professional events and over $125m in career earnings. Devil
