U.S. Public Links: Niebrugge to try for 2nd straight
According to Andy Zunz of Golfweek, Jordan Niebrugge will be the first player to attempt to win back-to-back U.S. Amateur Public Links championships since 2009.

Niebrugge, who defeated Michael Kim in last year's championship match at Laurel Hill Golf Club last summer, submitted his entry into the July 14-19 event at Sand Creek Station in Newton, Kan.

This year's Public Links, of course, is the final one. Next year, the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball will take its place on the USGA's national schedule.

Last year's Public Links championship set Niebrugge on the course for what is one of the best amateur summers in recent history. Following his win at Laurel Hill, the Oklahoma State sophomore went on to win the Wisconsin State Amateur and prestigous Western Amateur in successive weeks. The success landed him a spot on the U.S. Walker Cup team, which won at the National Golf Links of America in September.

The USGA victory also earned Niebrugge a start at The Masters last week.
