More on semifinalists:
Garrett Barber and Cole Hammer forged a friendship playing junior golf, but got a chance to know each other’s games better when they were teammates on the victorious 2017 USA Junior Presidents Cup Team. They prevailed, 3 and 2, in a foursomes (alternate shot) match on the first day of the two-day event at Plainfield (N.J.) Country Club.
Among the 50-plus texts that Hammer received following the win was from his instructor, Cameron McCormick, who also works with 2015 U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth as well as USGA champions Noah Goodwin, Philip Barbaree, Will Zalatoris and Shuai Ming Wong. McCormick sent a video of Spieth and his caddie, Michael Greller, congratulating him.
