Yes, it was probably the most unexpected week at the U.S. Open. Not because Rory McIlroy won, but because of all twelve records he broke in the process. But there was another unexpected record broke over the weekend.

Patrick Cantlay, the sophomore to be at UCLA, won the silver medal on Sunday to claim low-medalist honors. Cantlay shot an even-par 284, which has been the lowest score by an amateur since Jim Simons shot 283 in 1971. He finished tied for 21st.

Another amateur that may sound familiar to many is Russell Henley, who won low amateur accolades last year at the U.S. Open. Sure, he won many fans over by the way he played both years at the U.S. Open, but also his enthusiasm for the game. He won the crowd over at the 18th green by throwing golf balls into the stands and pumping up the crowds for the players to following him in. He finished tied for 42nd.

Yes, even though these two players have showed the world what they can do, they will still be amateurs throughout the summer. Henley graduated from Georgia in May and plans to stay amateur until after the Walker Cup. Cantlay will be going into his second year and plans to earn his degree. They are both, basically, locks for the Walker Cup team. But don’t put them off your radar just yet because they are both attending the amateur tournament held at Niagara Falls Country Club every year, the Porter Cup. Come out and watch.
