FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Rising sophomore Jack Wall won the 118th Met Amateur on Sunday at Bethpage Black. He defeated Luke Sample, 4&2, in the 36-hole championship match.

From there, Wall made birdies at eight and nine to take a 2-up lead heading into the back nine. He didn’t trail the rest of the match en route to victory.

Widely regarded as one of the toughest courses in the country, Bethpage Black most recently played host to the 2019 PGA Championship. It’s also been the site for two U.S. Opens (2002 & 2009) and is a future site for the Ryder Cup (2025).
Wall started all five fall tournaments for the Gamecocks during the shortened 2019-20 season and played well, posting a score average of 71.93 with eight rounds of par or better and five scores in the 60s. He had a career-best showing at the J.T. Poston Invitational (Sept. 30-Oct. 1) with his first top-10 after finishing T-7th with a 54-hole total of 204 (-9). Wall fired three-straight under par rounds at the event, including a final round 65 (-6) for a career low 18-hole score. He helped the team set the new 54-hole tournament scoring record at 806 (-46).
