TOP US-based Zimbabwean amateur Scott Vincent made history on Friday after making the cut on his first ever Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour event — the US$5,9 million 2015 RBC Heritage underway in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, United States.

The former Chapman golf club junior shot a second consecutive 70, achieving a 2-under 140 score and tie for 40th place, which was enough for him to see out the weekend on his debut PGA Tour appearance on Friday.
Vincent (21), the 2014 Players Amateur winner, is rubbing shoulders with the world’s best in the event that concludes today and includes compatriot Brendon de Jonge, an established professional, who also made the cut carding 4 under par 138.
Now a Virginia Tech senior, Vincent was one of two amateurs in the field this week at the tournament alongside the 2014 US Amateur winner Gunn Yang, after receiving a sponsor’s exemption to play at Harbor Town Golf Links.
