Former SMU golfer Kelly Kraft wins U.S. Am
Denton's Kelly Kraft hung on for a 2-up victory at the U.S. Amateur final Sunday at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis.
Kraft, who just finished his senior season at SMU, took the lead after UCLA star and No. 1-ranked amateur Patrick Cantlay bogeyed No. 16.
Both will receive a spot next year's U.S. Open, and U.S. Amateur finalists traditionally are invited to The Masters. Kraft also earns a spot in the British Open with the win.
