My guest on this special episode is the 2020 U.S. Amateur Champion, Tyler Strafaci. We caught up just a few days after his dramatic victory over Ollie Osborne at Bandon Dunes. We spoke about Tyler's incredible summer season, the challenges around playing a U.S. Amateur during the coronavirus pandemic, and some behind-the-scenes details that found him leaving the state of Oregon with the Havemeyer Trophy.

Our eighth episode in the series takes us down The Road to Hoylake as we catch up with the two young men that squared off in the U.S. Amateur final at Pinehurst. Andy Ogletree was victorious over John Augenstein in the end, but both have made it to Hoylake as members of the U.S. Walker Cup team. We were fortunate enough to grab them both for a quick chat at the Newark airport before they hopped a flight to the UK. Thanks to the USGA for helping us get some time with John and Andy!
