Golfer Kunz bows out in round of 16 at U.S. Public Links Championship

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Binghamton golfer Joe Kunz (Webster, N.Y.) made a strong showing at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship before bowing out Thursday afternoon in the round of 16. At the Blue Heron Pines Golf Club, Kunz advanced to the third round of match play before falling 4 and 2 to Matthew Every (Daytona Beach, Fla.).

Kunz scored an impressive morning victory in the round of 32 - winning 1 up over Henry Liaw (Rowland Heights, Calif.), the 2001 U.S. Junior Amateur Champion. In that match, Kunz never trailed, and earned the pivotal edge with a birdie on the par-5 15th hole. It was his fifth birdie of the round.

In the afternoon, Kunz ran into a sizzling Every, who recorded six birdies in 16 holes to end the match early. Kunz played steady golf with six straight pars at the end of the match.

The advancement by Kunz represented the best finish for a BU golfer at the event since former teammate and 2003 graduate Adam Fuchs (Plainview, N.Y.) reached the semifinals in 2001. Fuchs was beaten in the round of 64 on Wednesday.
