Niebrugge captures

Western Amateur title

ROLAND, Ark. (AP) — U.S. Public Links champion Jordan Niebrugge of Oklahoma State  won the Western Amateur final Monday, 3 and 2 over Sean Dale for his third win in three weeks.

Niebrugge and Dale were tied playing the ninth hole Sunday when the final was suspended because of threatening weather. They resumed play Monday and Niebrugge won the first three holes, including birdies on the 10th and 11th, to take a 3-up lead with seven holes to play. Dale birdied 15, but bogeyed the par-3 16th to end the match.

Niebrugge followed his Public Links win with a victory in the Wisconsin State Amateur tourney.  His next stop is the U.S. Amateur Aug. 12-18 at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.
