Cameron Young missed the cut at the US Open despite this hole-in-one at the 165-yard par-three 6th with an 8-iron.
That's a 1️⃣!

“I’ve been hitting it right all week, so I flipped an 8-iron, and kind of went straight at it, and by some miracle it went in,” Young said. “At that point I had kind of given up because I was nine over. Then made a hole-in-one, and then almost holed out on the next hole, and then made a birdie on 8, and had some kind of look on 9.
“Knowing I had to make birdie, I kind of pulled the 9-iron and didn’t make it.”
Young missed a 35-foot birdie putt and settled for back-to-back rounds of 72, his 144 just one over the cut line.
“It’s hard to sit here and be that pleased that I made a hole-in-one when I missed the cut,” Young said.
