AUGUSTA, Ga. –Oliver Goss is the first Australian to finish as the low amateur at the Masters.
Goss, who turned 20 on Saturday, will be awarded with the Silver Cup. The low amateur must make the 36-hole cut to be eligible for the award, which began in 1952.
“I can’t believe it,” Goss said after a 3-over 75 that left him plus 10 for the tournament. “To be the first (Australian) is really quite unbelievable. … I’ve just got to step back now and have a look at the entire week and just learn as much as I can from the whole week.”
Goss plans to play the U.S. Open as an amateur in June and then decide whether to turn pro.
