Top 5 performances at the Masters by an amateur

AUGUSTA, Ga. (BVM) – Sam Bennett is making history at the Masters right now. Playing as an amateur, the Texas A&M golfer is currently 8-under and just four strokes behind leader Brooks Koepka. It’s the second lowest score by an amateur after the first two rounds at the Masters. If he keeps it up he could potentially be the first ever amateur to put on a green jacket.

Even if he doesn’t, Bennett has put together a historic outing through two days at the Masters. He tied the record for lowest first nine by an amateur at the Masters and is the first amateur to have a bogey-free round at the Masters since Billy Joe Patton did it in 1965.

Bennett is following the last bit of advice his late father gave him, “Don’t wait to do something,” and if he ever forgets it, he has it tattooed on his wrist.

The 23-year-old said that his first tee shot of the Masters has been the toughest part for him so far. Once he got past that first drive it’s been all about staying consistent and that’s exactly what he’s done. He has posted 68s in his first two rounds, the first amateur to do that at the Masters since 1961.

It’s an extremely impressive Masters outing already and it could end being the best. Here are the top five Masters performances by an amateur that Bennett will be competing with.
