Viktor Hovland breaks Jack Nicklaus' US Open amateur record

Amateur Hovland breaks Jack's U.S. Open mark

Viktor Hovland sets scoring record for an amateur at U.S. Open

Hovland is the first golfer to earn Low Amateur at the U.S. Open at the same course he won U.S. Amateur since 1902.

Hovland got off to a hot start on Sunday, going out in 31 with four birdies over his final six holes on the front nine, including one on the hard par-4 eighth, where he stuck his approach to two feet.

Four amateurs made the cut at the U.S. Open. His last act as an amateur was a powerful one, though.

Norway's young and highly promising golfer Viktor Hovland shocked players and spectators alike at the US Open at Pebble Beach over the weekend, when he ended the prestigious tournament four under par. Nicklaus was the low amateur and runner-up to Arnold Palmer at the 1960 U.S. Open in Cherry Hills, Colorado, with a score 282.

"I didn't know that", Hovland said with a laugh moments after the round while being interviewed by Fox Sports' Joel Klatt.

This performance shouldn't come as a huge surprise since he was the low amateur at the Masters earlier this year, but it affirms the notion that he's ready to compete right away as a pro on the PGA Tour.

What does @OSUCowboyGolf's Viktor Hovland have to say about breaking a Jack Nicklaus-held #USOpen record? Hovland's final-round 67 was preceded by rounds of 69-73-71. "Got off to a great start on the first round but wasn't quite able to capitalize on it". The 2018 U.S. Amateur champion, Hovland was also the low amateur at the Masters in April. Bratton also caddied for Hovland at the U.S. Amateur.

Hovland, who was also low amateur at this year's Masters and victor of the Ben Hogan Award as the best men's player in college golf, will turn pro at next week's Travelers Championship. He finished five strokes ahead of No. 2 amateur Brandon Wu of Stanford.

"I've had the three best years of my life at Oklahoma State and I've learned so much not only as a player but as a person", said the 21-year-old.
