SORRENTO, Fla. – With a two-day score of 69-66—135 (-9), rising sophomore Kevin Reilly won the medal at this week’s U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship qualifier at Eagle Dunes Golf Club and secured one of the event’s two bids to the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship next month.
The championship tournament is slated for July 14-19 at Sand Creek Station Golf Course in Newton, Kan. The event features two rounds of stroke play, with the top 64 players advancing to six rounds of match play.
The 2014 Conference USA Freshman of the Year finished three strokes ahead of runner up Jon Veneziano, who also earned a spot in the championship with a 69-69—138 (-6), ahead of 44 other golfers in the field.
Among the 23 completed qualifying tournaments around the country, Reilly’s overall tally is tied for the third-lowest score. A total of 156 golfers from 71 qualifying events will compete in the championship.
The Oviedo, Fla. native earned second team all-conference honors this season while leading the C-USA Champion Owls with a 72.63 stroke average. Reilly was the team’s leading scorer in 8-of-12 events on the season. He twice shot a 66 in his rookie campaign, including at the NCAA Raleigh Regional in May, to tie for the third-lowest round in program history.
Last summer, Reilly placed 125th in the U.S. Amateur Championship with five birdies over two rounds.
