OOLTEWAH, TENN — Carney–Nadeau’s Hunter Eichhorn has spent this week competing against the best amateur golfers in the world and he showed that he belonged.
Eichhorn took part in the 69th Junior Amateur tournament and finished tied for 11th after stroke play, which secured himself a spot in the round of 64 where his exciting journey ended. He talked about his mindset going into a large scale tournament.
“To trust all of my shots, everything that I was supposed to do, commit to every shot. Believe in myself, knowing that I was going up against the best juniors. Not to back down from anyone or any situation. I was very happy with my performance,” said Eichhorn.
Eichhorn is a self–taught golfer, competing against amateurs who have been trained by professionals. He says he appreciates all the support he got from everyone across the Upper Peninsula.
“It’s so huge to have people that I have never really talked to or communicated with from all parts of the U.P. tweeting at me and commenting on Facebook, messaging me in any form of social media, telling me good luck and giving me that extra boost of support and confidence. It was huge,” Eichhorn said.
