University of Tennessee junior golfer Lloyd Campbell did not make the cut at the 133rd British Open.
With a two-day total of 147 (+5), he was just two strokes away from playing over the weekend.
But the Kent, England, native ranked second out of five amateurs in the field at Scotland's famed Royal Troon.
During his two days of play, Campbell averaged 293 yards on his drives, recorded five birdies (23 pars) and had no three-putts in 36 holes.
Scotland's Stewart Wilson was the only amateur to make this year's cut.
U.S. golfer Todd Hamilton beat South African Ernie Els in a four-hole playoff to win the major championship.
After taking second at the U.S. Open in June, Masters champion Phil Mickelson finished one stroke behind the leaders (-9) to earn his third top-three finish in majors this year.
