[VIDEO] Young Amateur scores date with Holly Sonders 

Andrew Orischak hits the Jackpot!

Orischak was unable to secure the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship final.  But thanks to his father he was rewarded with an incredible consolidation prize, a prom date with Holly Sonders.

Yes that’s right, Foxsports golf reporter, Holly Sonders! Probably the most recognized female golf personality on the planet. Just in case you’ve been living on Mars, that is her above.

Anyway, Orischak’s father set up a date for him at next year’s senior prom at Hilton Head High School, if he were to win the U.S. Junior Amateur. In the 36-hole final on Saturday at Colleton River Plantation in Bluffton, S.C., Orischak was 5 up on Philip Barbaree of Shreveport, La., with eight holes to play, but he couldn’t close him out. Clearly the young fellow was feeling the added pressure. Barbaree was to go on and win five of the final eight holes of regulation, then win the championship on the 37th hole.

Obviously devastated missing out on the US Junior Amateur title, and more importantly the date. His mind was put to ease by this tweet from Holly.
