Im Falls in U.S. Amateur Publinks Quarterfinals
July 14, 2006
UCLA junior Daniel Im fell in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship Friday at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Wash.
Im lost 3 and 1 to Casey Watabu of Kapaa, HI in a close match in which he never led. Im squared the match twice, but could not recover after he double-bogeyed the 13th to go down two holes. Watabu's birdie at the 17th gave him the match and a date in the semifinals Friday afternoon.
As a quarterfinalist this year, Im will receive an exemption from sectional qualifying into the 2007 Publinks Championship.
