Quick Qualifies for Pub Links Championship

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State senior-to-be Kali Quick got her summer off to a fast start Monday by qualifying for the 2007 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship.

A product of Nampa, Idaho, Quick shot an even-par 71 at the Boise Ranch Golf Course to win the Boise, Idaho, Sectional Qualifier.

Quick, who just recently overcame a bout with mononucleosis that sidelined her for the last two months of the Wildcats’ 2006-07 season, will take aim at the Pub Links amateur title June 18-23 in Lexington, Ky., at the Kearney Hill Golf Links.

A total of 156 players are expected to qualify for this year’s championship by the time sectional competition concludes on June 2.

All championship qualifiers will take part in a 36-hole stroke-play competition on June 18 and 19, with the top 64 players advancing to the single-elimination match play portion of the championship June 20-23.

The Women's Amateur Public Links Championship is one of 13 national championships conducted annually by the United State’s Golf Association (USGA), 10 of which are strictly for amateurs.

The WAPL is unique in that the championship is only open to amateur public course golfers and players are not permitted to hold privileges at any course that does not extend playing privileges to the general public.
