Northeast Am Champ Nick Dunlap Wins U.S. Amateur

What a summer for Nick Dunlap. 

The 2023 Northeast Amateur champ beat Neal Shipley 4&3 to win the U.S. Amateur on Sunday at Cherry Hills in Colorado. 

He and Tiger Woods are now the only players ever to win both a U.S. Junior Amateur and a U.S. Amateur. 

“I think it’s only a third of what he’s done. Just to be in the same conversation with Tiger is a dream come true and something I’ve worked for my whole life,” said Dunlap after the round.
