American Cameron Young missed the cut at the 2022 U.S. Open.
But he won’t be leaving The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, without having etched his name into the U.S. Open history books.
On the par-3 third hole of Friday’s second round, Young made a hole-in-one from 165 yards out. His ace is just the 48th known hole-in-one in tournament history.
Gotta love the club-flip celebration.
The incredible shot came during what was a wild six-hole stretch for the 25-year-old. Young shot a quadruple-bogey on the par-4 third hole and then a bogey on the fourth hole, dropping his overall score to +9. Then, he nearly pulled off an improbable comeback to make the cut.
The PGA Tour rookie birdied the fifth, aced the sixth and birdied the seventh and eighth to bring his score to +4 entering the final hole of his round. With the projected cut at +4, he finished with a par on the ninth hole.
An impressive last-ditch effort, but Young ultimately failed to make the cut for the third time in three career appearances at the U.S. Open.
