Ohio State golfer Neal Shipley had a bucket list weekend at the Masters Tournament.

The graduate student golfer won the Low Amateur at the 2024 Masters, and he got paired with five-time Masters winner Tiger Woods to finish the tournament on Sunday.

“He was great to me all day,” Shipley said about Woods in a press conference. “Couldn’t be more appreciative of him just being awesome today, and it was just really cool to be around him and just the attention he gets and the roars. The crowds were phenomenal.”

Shipley is now the second-ever Buckeye golfer to win the Low Amateur at the Masters. He’s preceded by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, who went on to win the Masters six times.

Shipley will compete in another major tournament this summer — the US Open at the Pinehurst No. 2 course from Monday, Aug. 26-Sunday, Sept. 8.
