Kim, 21, from Ann Arbor, Mich., lost the first hole of the scheduled 36-hole final to McDaniel, 25, of Tucson, Ariz., but won the second to square the match. He never trailed again. More

USGA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
At this week's U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, Gavin Hall distinguishes himself as not your typical golfer. Forget, for a moment, that he's one of the few left-handers in the field. In a field filled with loyal caddies, he's not employing one. The 15-year-old from Pittsford, N.Y., is also here without his parents in tow. He plays golf and writes left-handed, but shoots hoops right-handed. He admittedly doesn't procrastinate nor change swing coaches every five minutes. But what has truly distinguished Hall from the rest of the field was his 10-under 62 in the second round of stroke-play qualifying at Egypt Valley Country Club, which signaled the lowest score in the 63-year history of the U.S. Junior Amateur and tied the second-lowest aggregate at any USGA championship.
