Wow. What another wild weekend across the country.
Looking back on the weekend that was in amateur golf, there was no tournament that had the firepower seen at the Western Amateur in Highland Park, Ill.
Considered the amateur game's toughest test, the grueling event --- which includes 72 holes of stroke play before four rounds of match play --- was won by Washington Huskies star Chris Williams.
The rising senior took home medalist honors through stroke-play qualifying with a record-breaking 17-under par (breaking his own record of 16-under last year) and carried that momentum through match play with great wins over Richard Lamb, Brandon Stone, Abraham Ancer and, in the finals, Jordan Russell.
Another important amateur event is the Cardinal Amateur, which tees off Thursday at Cardinal Golf and Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. In Texas, the North and South Amateur Championships will kick off Friday.
