Arlington Heights Native Low Amateur at Masters

Arlington Heights native and 2014 CDGA Player of the Year Doug Ghim earned low amateur at his first Masters. The 22-year-old was the only amateur to make the cut, finishing 8-over-par after rounds of 72, 76, 74 and 74. His four rounds featured three eagles and a chip in for birdie on his final hole.

Ghim carded an even-par 72 in Round One featuring two eagles. He rolled in an eight-footer for a 3 on No. 13, the first eagle of the day for the entire field, before capping off his round with just the sixth eagle ever on No. 18.

Ghim followed up that performance by notching three birdies as part of a 4-over 76 in the second round on Friday, which was good enough to make the cut. Ghim was the only amateur to make it to the weekend, ensuring low amateur honors and a spot in Butler Cabin on Sunday evening.

Ghim secured his third piece of Masters crystal during his third round on Saturday, again notching an eagle on No. 13 as part of a two-over 74. He carded an identical 2-over par 74 in his final round on Sunday.
