Our sixth episode takes us down The Road to Hoylake as we catch up junior standouts Akshay Bhatia and Ricky Castillo. Akshay, the #1 ranked junior in the world, has already been selected to the U.S. Team and will look to leave the amateur ranks on a high note at Hoylake. Ricky just completed a fantastic run at the Western Amateur and is looking to keep the momentum going at the U.S. Amateur. As always, we catch up with Julie Williams from AmateurGolf.com for some additional insight.
