Two down, eight to go for Vanderbilt golfer Jackson Van Paris at Pinehurst Resort.

The 19-year-old from Pinehurst, N.C., set the course record on Pinehurst No. 4 just six weeks ago during the North & South Amateur and added his name to the record book at The Cradle, Pinehurst’s 9-hole par-3 short course designed by Gil Hanse.

Van Paris, shot an 18 on Sunday, carding an ace at No. 6, seven birdies and a par at the last. On the card, it reads: 2-2-2-2-2-1-2-2-3.

The new course record is one shot better than the previous mark shared by Jack Heath and Bob Windows.

Van Paris is having quite the summer on the course — he also won the Sunnehanna Amateur, posting another 61 there.

What will Van Paris do next? We can’t wait to see which record at Pinehurst’s 10 courses — soon to be 11 — he checks off next. For the record, the low round at No. 2, site of the 2024 U.S. Open, is shared by the likes of Tom Watson, Hale Irwin and Gibby Gilbert with 62.
