NEWTON, Kan. – National Amateur Team member Garrett Rank has fallen in the round of 16 at the U.S. Amateur Public Links on Thursday, losing his match 3 & 2.
Rank made it interesting down the stretch, pulling to within 1 thru 13 holes, but couldn’t hang on as Bryon Meth of San Diego, Calif. proved to be too much for the 26-year-old.
Rank is playing strong golf of late – he is coming off a second place finish at the prestigious Players Amateur tournament just a week earlier. That finish catapulted the Elmira, Ont. native into the World Amateur Golf Ranking’s (WAGR) top 100, where he currently sits at No. 98. He will look for that number to drop even more after his performance this week in Kansas.
This finish marks the second consecutive strong showing for Rank at the U.S. Amateur Public Links – he earned medalist honours at last year’s event.
