By shooting a 142 at the Sycuan Resort Glen Oaks in El Cajon, Calif., Liberty golfer Nathan Schenz-Davis has qualified for the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, to be held July 14-19 in Aurora, Colo., at the Murphy Creek Golf Course.

Schenz-Davis (San Diego, Calif.), along with Seve Gonzales and Chris Freeman qualified for the event after their finishes at the San Diego-area course earlier this month. As a redshirt sophomore this past season for Liberty, Schenz-Davis earned Ping all-region honors and was named to the Big South all-conference team. Schenz-Davis' inclusion on the Ping all-region team made him the only golfer from the Big South Conference in 2008 to earn such honors.

Since its inception in 1922, the U.S. Amateur Public Links (APL) has given exposure to many public-course players who otherwise might not have an opportunity to compete in a national championship. The competition is open to any bona fide public-course player whose USGA Handicap Index does not exceed 4.4. The APL is one of 13 national championships conducted annually by the USGA, 10 of which are strictly for amateurs.
