Defending Champion

Dean Greyserman's record setting final round led to a play-off against Nicholas Gabrelcik to determine the 103rd Amateur Champion. A birdie from Greyserman on the first playoff hole crowned him champion after a final round 62 and 10-under 278 finish. The 17-year-old became the first junior golfer to win the Amateur since Gabriel Lench in 2014 and Sam Horsfield in 2013. Click here for the previous year's results.

Exemptions Earned After 2017

Beginning in 2018, the Winner will receive the exemptions above but will receive a 25-year exemption into the Amateur Championship rather than a lifetime exemption. This exemption to the Amateur will not be lost in the event a player turns professional and subsequently has his amateur status reinstated by the USGA. Winners of the 2017 Amateur and prior years are grandfathered in under the prior policy and receive a lifetime exemption, except that consistent with the prior exemption rules, they would lose their lifetime exemption if they turned professional. Winners prior to 2018 that do turn professional, will retain their exemption for 25 years, which may used if their amateur status is reinstated.
