Auburn's Clanton Advances To Public Links Quarterfinal

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Auburn rising senior Cydney Clanton advanced to the quarterfinals of the United States Women's Amateur Public Links Championship last weekend, falling to Sara Grantham, 1-up. Clanton was one of three Tigers that advanced to the match play portion of the tournament.

Conducted by the United States Golf Association, the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links is a tournament open to any female golfer who does not hold privileges at any course which does not extend playing privileges to the general public. The event was contested at the par 71, 6,133-yard Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame.

 Clanton, a native of Concord, N.C., became a repeat quarterfinalist in the event after she defeated Kathryn Rogner, 4&3; Kelli Oride, 5&3; and No. 1 overall seed Ariya Jutanugarn, 1-up. She advanced to the match play portion of the tournament by finishing in a tie for 15th in the 156-player field with rounds of 71-74--145.

 Also advancing to match play were Candace Schepperle and Karlin Beck.

Clanton and Schepperle were two of only six players that were exempt from qualifying for the tournament based on their play in past USGA events.

 Schepperle, who just finished her senior season at Auburn, ranked in a tie for seventh in the stroke play portion with rounds of 70-74--144.

The Birmingham native then defeated Lindsay Danielson, 5&4, in the first round before falling to Stephanie Kono in 23 holes in the second round.

 Beck, a native of Pike Road, Ala., finished in a tie for 41st in the stroke play portion with rounds of 74-75--149, but fell in her first round match to Joy Trotter, 4&3.

 In the championship final, Emily Tubert downed Lisa McCloskey, 3&2, for the title.
