Curtis Luck, the 20-year old golfer from Australia, has been named Amateur of the Month for August by the Southern Golf Association.
Luck earned the title after his win on the South Course at Oakland Hills last month during the US Amateur Championship, becoming the third Aussie to capture the Havermeyer Trophy and securing his spot as the 7th ranked Amateur in the world.
