Viktor Hovland

Hovland was nothing short of dominant in becoming the first Norwegian to win the 2018 U.S. Amateur and the first to qualify for the Masters. He trailed for only one hole in six rounds of match play and tied the record for fewest holes of match play by a champion since 1979 with 104. He cruised to a 6-and-5 victory in the championship match over Devon Bling.
Two months earlier, Hovland helped Oklahoma State win the NCAA title on its home course, Karsten Creek, in Stillwater. As a sophomore, he earned First-Team All-America honors from both the Golf Coaches Association of America and Golfweek magazine. He was a member of the International team for the 2018 Palmer Cup and advanced to the Round of 16 at the 2018 Amateur Championship conducted by The R&A at Royal Aberdeen. Hovland finished runner-up at the 2016 European Amateur, where he lost on the seventh hole of a playoff. He helped Norway earn a share of 5th place at the 2018 World Amateur Team Championship in the Republic of Ireland.
Just completed his junior season at Oklahoma State University. The 21-year-old was born in Oslo, where his parents still live. He played soccer as a youth, but golf became his sole focus in the seventh grade. His father, Harald, who became enamored with the game when he worked in the United States, exposed him to the game after buying a set of clubs upon his return to Norway. Viktor was 3 or 4 years old at the time. By the time he was 11, Viktor played more golf than other sports and even though the game wasn't widely popular in Norway, he worked on his swing by hitting balls on a large soccer field near his house.
Hovland formulated his plans to play collegiate golf during his high-school years in Norway. Some of his friends turned professional and played on the ECCO Tour or the Scandinavian mini-tour, but Hovland felt his game was not ready yet. In his senior year, several American college coaches recruited him. He made visits to Texas Tech, TCU, Tennessee, and then Oklahoma State, but decided on OSU when he saw Karsten Creek and all the trophies along with the history of Oklahoma State. He knew it was the place for him.
With his OSU coach Alan Bratton on the bag at the Masters, Hovland shot 285 to finish T-32nd and his 3-under total earned him low-amateur status.
At the Big 12 Championship, Hovland finished 2nd, a shot back of winner Hayden Springer. Hovland shot 4 over par in the NCAAs and finished T-15th. OSU was upset in the semifinals of match play by Texas.
