Houston's Hammer, Barber Win U.S. Am Four-Ball
Author: TGA Staff/USGA
A pair of high school seniors took down some of the game's best amateurs and won the 4th U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship on Wednesday.
Eighteen-year-olds Cole Hammer and Garrett Barber downed Marc Dull and Chip Brooke 4 and 3 in the 18-hole final at Jupiter Hills Golf Club in Tequesta, Fla.
Hammer, who played in the 2015 U.S. Open as a 15-year-old, and Barber dominated the event. They trailed for only two holes throughout their five matches and 71 holes.
"Growing up watching U.S. Opens and U.S. Amateurs on TV, I just knew being a USGA champion is something that I desperately wanted," Hammer said. "To finally do it, it feels incredible. It feels as good, if not better, than I thought it would. And especially being able to do it with Garrett."
