Oklahoma State junior Viktor Hovland finished with a 72-hole score of 285, 3-under par, to become the fourth Cowboy to earn Low Amateur status at The Masters on Sunday.

Hovland's total at Augusta National Golf Club bested Mexico's Alvaro Ortiz by one shot and resulted in him the first OSU player to earn the distinction since Casey Wittenberg tied for 13th place in 2004. Lindy Miller tied for 16th place in 1978 and Labron Harris, Jr. tied for 32nd place in 1963.

Overall, Hovland finished tied for 32nd place after carding his third consecutive round of 71 to secure the Silver Cup.

Additionally, Hovland made history by becoming the first-ever Norwegian to compete at the event.
