PGA Tour Rookie of the Year again is showing why he is living up to that title. Wednesday of this week, Young came roaring out of the gates in round 1 of match play against his opponent Davis Thompson.
Young started rifling off birdies from the very first hole, where he conceded a birdie putt but hit it anyway for practice and sunk it. Just take a look for yourself for the impressive run that Cameron was on.
On every single hole of the front 9, Young astonishingly recorded a 3 on each and every hole to turn in a front nine score of 27. He went on to beat his competitor 3up with 2 to play, a very solid showing from Cameron. It seems that his new looper on the bag, Paul Tesori, is working wonders for him to get him in this kind of head space to be recording scores like this.
In addition to that, even though Tesori was Webb Simpson’s caddy since 2011, he saw it best fit that his mentee Cameron Young receive such a knowledgeable caddy.
An update from the second round Young won his match 1up against Corey Conners. The gentlemen had to go all 18 holes to determine the match. Cameron made a clutch comeback starting on the 16th, where he was down 1 from the 7th to go eagle, birdie on 16 and 17, and ultimately secure the victory with a par on the 18th.
Cameron Young is in a comfortable spot going into the final day of pool play, as he is the only player with 2 points in his group. All he needs to do is at least secure a tie to guarantee a spot in the quarterfinals on Saturday without having to go to a playoff.
