Gordon Sargent

Gordon Sargent

Reached the No.1 spot on the world amateur rankings in February 2023 and although he was twice overtaken by Swede Ludvig Aberg, Sargent was back there in August in time to take the Mark McCormack Medal and with it gain exemptions into the US Open and The 152nd Open. 

Reached the No.1 spot on the world amateur rankings in February 2023 and although he was twice overtaken by Swede Ludvig Aberg, Sargent was back there in August in time to take the Mark McCormack Medal and with it gain exemptions into the US Open and The 152nd Open. 

By then, the Vanderbilt University student had already won the NCAA individual title – only the ninth freshman to do so - and been invited to The Masters and US Open, where he finished leading amateur in joint 39th place.

In September, he won all his four games in America’s Walker Cup victory at St Andrews and a month later he teamed up with Nick Dunlap and David Ford for an 11-stroke triumph at the Eisenhower Trophy World Amateur Team Championship in Abu Dhabi.

He had been one of the favourites for the US Amateur Championship but had the misfortune to be drawn against Dunlap in the first round of match play. Dunlap won 2&1 with a five-under-par performance at Cherry Hills and went on to lift the trophy.
