During the past season on the PGA Tour, the youth movement has ridden a wave of momentum and Norway’s Viktor Hovland is at the forefront of it.
The 2018 US Amateur champion continues to break records – in 2019 during the US Open at Pebble Beach, site of his US Amateur Championship win, Hovland broke Jack Nicklaus’ record for low 72 hole score by an amateur. Just a few months later after having turned professional, Hovland was back at it shattering a long-standing PGA Tour record for most consecutive rounds in the 60’s – an incredible 19. Then, in February 2020, Hovland became the first Norwegian to win on the PGA Tour, capturing his maiden title at the Puerto Rico Open, propelling him into the world’s Top 60. The sky is the limit for the smiling assassin and one of golf’s great personalities. It’s a thrill for everyone involved with the Junior 6’s to welcome Viktor as an ambassador.
