2017 Championship Doc Redman, 19, of Raleigh, N.C., rallied from 2 down with two holes to play by making a 60-foot eagle putt on the 35th hole and an 8-footer for birdie on the par-4 36th to force extra holes, and then had his birdie putt conceded by Doug Ghim on the 37th hole to win the 117th U.S. Amateur at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
Quotable “It’s incredible to add my name to the list of all the champions and to have conquered arguably the best field in amateur golf in a really difficult grind. I beat some of the best players in the world, and I hope that this can catapult me up into that conversation as well going forward.” -- Doc Redman
