These 10 amateurs have made 12 cuts so far on the PGA Tour in 2024

The amateurs are shining bright in 2024.

So far this PGA Tour season, a total of 10 amateurs have made the cut 12 times, with two of these hotshot upstarts – Neal Shipley and Luke Clanton – turning the trick at two different events.

Shipley has one up on Clanton in 2024 by making the cut at two majors: the Masters and the U.S. Open.

Nick Dunlap, of course, one-upped all the ams in 2024 as he’s the one with a victory, at the American Express back in January. He’s on the very short list of just eight golfers to win a PGA Tour event as an amateur. His win in the Southern California desert seemed to foretell things to come.

The Rocket Mortgage Classic had two amateurs make the cut. The U.S. Open, annually the sternest test in golf, saw three ams make the weekend, the most of any of the 29 tournaments so far in 2024.

Would-be winnings

Ams don’t get paid if they make the cut but if these guys did pocket the money from the finishing positions they posted, they would have taken home a total of $2,278,505.

Dunlap’s payday at the AmEx would’ve been worth $1.512 million. There were two other would-be six-figure paychecks as well.
