1964 Johnny Miller wins U.S. Junior Amateur
For the first time in U.S. Junior Amateur history, the USGA conducted on-site stroke-play qualifying to determine the 64 players who would advance to match play out of the 150-player field. Johnny Miller, a 17-year-old from San Francisco, Calif., who would later capture the 1973 U.S. Open, not only was the stroke-play qualifying medalist at 3-under-par 139, but he also advanced all the way to the championship final, where he defeated Enrique Sterling Jr. of Mexico, 2 and 1, at Eugene (Ore.) Country Club. Miller is one of only two golfers to win both the Junior and the Open. The other is Tiger Woods.
