UC Santa Barbara golfer Scott Lewis finished his experience at the U.S. Open in Farmingdale, N.Y. by shooting an 21-over 161. That score leaves the sophomore in 154th.
Lewis, who made the tournament after Dudley Hart pulled out due to injury, had his first round at Bethpage Black delayed due to rain and had to finish on Friday morning. He shot an 11-over par 81 in the first round and a 10-over 80 in Saturday's second round.
Lewis reached par in 18 of 36 holes. On Saturday, he birdied the par-4 fourth hole. He drove the fairway on 71 percent of his holes, well above the field average of 63.9 percent. To see how Lewis' stats from the first two rounds compare to the rest of the golfers at the U.S. Open, click here.
He had 12 bogeys and five double bogeys in his two rounds. The Henderson, Nev. native was one of 14 amateurs playing the course.
