Hill finishes T-70 at AT&T

Monday, July 6, 2009

NCAA champion Matt Hill tied for 70th at the AT&T National with a 10-over 290 total (71-69-75-75). Hill, a junior-to-be at North Carolina State, was Golfweek’s College Player of the Year this season. Hill made birdies on Nos. 13-15 in the second round to make the cut with two shots to spare.

Hill struggled on No. 11, the same hole that gave Tiger Woods fits. Hill played it in 6 over, making double bogey on the par-4 in each of the first three rounds. Woods played the hole 5 over en route to victory.

It was a good week for Canadian amateurs, as well. Nick Taylor won the Sahalee Players Championship last week.
