Crimson Tide golfers continue impressive play this summer

Former Alabama golfer Bud Cauley posted his first top-five finish on the PGA Tour this past weekend while current UA golfers Bobby Wyatt, Hunter Hamrick and Justin Thomas turned in impressive performances at the Southern Amateur.

Cauley, who decided to turn professional following his junior season at the Capstone last month, posted a tie for fourth in the Viking Classic at the Annandale Golf Club in Madison, Mississippi, on Sunday. Cauley has now made the cut in each of the three PGA Tour events he has played in since turning pro. He finished tied for 63rd at the U.S. Open at Congressional and tied for 24th at the Travelers Championship.

He shot 68-67-66-67 to finish at 20-under-par 268 at the Viking Classic, just two shots back of the winner. He earned a $148,800 paycheck, the biggest of his young career. In three events on the PGA Tour, McCauley has earned $213,845.

Wyatt, a native of Mobile, Ala., led the way with a tie for second place. He closed with a 5-under-par 66 for a 72-hole total of 6-under-par 278 after rounds of 70, 72 and 70. Wyatt finished three strokes back of Harris English (-9, 275) and tied with Richy Werenski and Tarquin MacManus at the par-71 Innisbrook Resort.

Senior-to-be Hunter Hamrick also posted a top-10 showing with a 3-under-par total of 281. He finished in a tie for eighth place after rounds of 67-71-70-73. Incoming freshman Justin Thomas of Goshen, Kentucky, finished tied for 22nd at 1-over-par 285.
