Olson receives a call of a lifetime
To top it off, all this happened on his birthday.
"I was at the top of the list as a first alternate for the U.S. Amateur, so I thought I had a decent shot of making it," Olson said. "But this is just great receiving that call."
Olson shot an even par 72-72-144 during his U.S. Amateur qualifying rounds a couple of weeks ago and his score was good enough to add him to the top of alternate list.
