Golf amateur, Rusty Strawn, reels in a giant Northern Pike during the practice round of U.S. Senior Open

During the U.S. Senior Open’s practice round earlier this week, caddies and players were able to trade their clubs for fishing rods and put their skills to the test.

Georgia native Rusty Strawn reeled in a giant Northern Pike on the 12th Hole at SentryWorld. Strawn is not only the 2022 Senior Amateur Champion, but an outdoorsman, who was surprised at what he caught.

“I didn’t have any tackle. Rod and reel. No lures. Went over there and one of the guides over there said, ‘Hey just take this.’ I took a plastic worm and took it out there and on the third cast. I’d never caught a Northern Pike that size, or at all,” Strawn tells WSAW-TV.

Strawn believes it is close to 50 inches.
