Wisconsin Open: Harrison Ott gains momentum with win
Harrison Ott (Rick Wood/Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
Vanderbilt’s Harrison Ott capped off his hot summer with one more win at the 100th Wisconsin State Open.
The rising senior put an end to non-amateur Dan Woltman’s attempt to make it a three-peat at the Wisconsin Open as Woltman finished six-shots behind Ott in a tie for second.
“I think I’ve figured out better what I need to play well,” Ott told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I’ve been putting really well. I think that’s what’s pushed me over the edge this week and today.”
After making it to match play at the Western Amateur in June and making a run to the Round of 16 at the U.S. Amateur last week, Ott ends his summer on a high note and continues to build momentum into the SEC collegiate fall season.
Closing his fifth event of the summer with a ‘w’, Ott now has a moment to catch his breath before heading back to Nashville to begin his senior season for the Commodores.
"I was home a good bit, just playing with my dad and his buddies and some of my buddies," Ott said. "Which was cool, I haven't really had time to do that.
With rounds of 67-67-68-68, Ott cruised to a six-shot victory over Woltman and fellow amateur Christopher Colla who both finished in a tie for second at 4-under.
"I was trying to slow down just to keep my mind where my body was,” Ott said. "It was definitely a grind. I think we were all slowing down a good bit at the end.”
With the win, Ott can now place the Wisconsin Open trophy next to the Wisconsin Amateur trophy he won back in 2018.
