NORMAN, Okla. -- University of Oklahoma men’s golf senior Michael Gellerman has advanced to the Round of 16 at the 2014 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championships (APL) at the 7,365-yard, par-71 Sand Creek Station Golf Course in Newton, Kan.

Gellerman, who is playing just an hour from his hometown of Sterling, Kan., defeated Patrick Beyhan of Albuquerque, N.M., in Thursday morning’s second-round match, 4-and-3. On Wednesday, he grabbed a 5-and-4 win over Trent Peterson of Eagan, Minn., in the Round of 64. Gellerman was the only Kansan from the 156-competitor field to make match play.

Thursday afternoon, Gellerman will face Jon Veneziano of Mount Dora, Fla., in the third round of match play starting at 12:40 CT.

The APL is one of 13 individual national championships conducted annually by the United States Golf Association, 10 of which are strictly for amateurs. The tournament winner will play in the 2015 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.
