Nick Dunlap matched this Tiger Woods mark after U.S. Amateur victory

CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. — Tiger Woods has so many records in golf, it’s difficult to keep up.

Some are more significant than others, and Nick Dunlap just matched one of Woods’ more impressive feats.

Dunlap, a 19-year-old sophomore at Alabama, won the 2023 U.S. Amateur on Sunday at Cherry Hills Country Club. He beat graduate student Neal Shipley from Ohio State in a 36-hole final, winning 4 and 3. In doing so, he matched history.

Dunlap became the second male golfer to win the U.S. Junior Amateur and the U.S. Amateur. Dunlap captured the U.S. Junior in 2021.

“I think it’s only a third of what he’s actually done,” Dunlap joked. “But just to be in the same conversation as Tiger is a dream come true and something that I’ve worked my entire life for.”

Woods won the U.S. Junior Am from 1991-93 and the U.S. Amateur from 1994-96.

“It’s the hours and hours that nobody sees to try to get to this point and even have a chance to win this trophy, it’s unbelievable,” Dunlap said. “Can’t put it into words.”
