Nick Dunlap, who won the 73rd U.S. Junior Amateur hosted at the Country Club of North Carolina in July, was named the 2021 AJGA Rolex Golfer of the Year following a year of dominance in the junior golf ranks.
Even outside of his win at the USGA event, Dunlap claimed eight top-5 finishes in junior events, including the wins at CCNC, the Dustin Johnson World Junior and the Polo Golf Junior Classic.
He followed up the Junior Am with a second-place finish at the Junior PLAYERS Championship in September.
With his win at CCNC, Dunlap is exempt into next year’s U.S. Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, as well as the next two U.S. Amateurs. Dunlap has verbally committed to play golf at the University of Alabama.
