'Life is fixin’ to change': Ogeltree goes from bagging groceries to U.S. Am champ

Highlights: Ogletree defeats Augenstein to win 119th U.S. Amateur


PINEHURST, N.C. – U.S. Amateur champions don’t come from Little Rock, Mississippi, the no-stoplight, unincorporated community of less than 2,000 residents. It’s where the post office sits in a trailer. Where boys go backroading for fun. Where the most happening place on a Friday night is Chesney’s Grocery & Cafe, the gas station that offers a seafood buffet with fried catfish and boiled shrimp (4 1/2 stars!).

And then along came Andy Ogletree.
