Financial Analyst Takes Break From Work to Win Top Amateur Honors at the 2017 Masters
Stewart Hagestad, a financial analyst in NYC with Oaktree Residential and Management, is a highly-rated amateur golfer. Check that. He's the top-rated amateur golfer, after winning the honors as low amateur at the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, GA - fulfilling the dream of a lifetime. Hagestad shot a 6-over-par score of 294 to finish 3 shots ahead of Australia’s Curtis Luck, who was the only other amateur to make the cut.
During a TV interview, sportscaster Jim Nantz asked Hagestad how he was able to play so well at the Masters.
“I played within myself. I made very committed golf swings. I didn’t make a double [bogey] all week. And, I think that was critical to keep me in it. Bogeys won’t kill you, but doubles will. I stuck to my game plan and I played great this week.”
Hagestad says he has no desire to turn pro, and will instead take part in a full amateur schedule this summer. And, if he continues to play well, perhaps he'll be selected to represent the United States in the Walker Cup this September. Playing alongside the best golf professionals in the world.
Sure beats crunching numbers.
