Fribbs, Harrell, Good Qualify for U.S. Amateur Public Links

WINDSOR — A day after winning the Colorado Golf Association Public Links Championship, former University of Colorado golfer Derek Fribbs parlayed his stellar play into earning medalist honors in Monday's U.S. Amateur Public Links qualifying at Highland Meadows Golf Course.
    The golfer from Castle Rock gained a spot in a USGA championship for the first time by shooting rounds of 66-65 for an 11-under-par 131 total.
    Fribbs, 22, eagled the 572-yard par-5 fifth hole in both rounds, and he added nine birdies and two bogeys to set the standard on Monday. That comes after he shot 65-66-62 over the weekend at the CGA Public Links at Twin Peaks Golf Course in Longmont.
    Joining Fribbs in qualifying for the U.S. Publinks — which is set for July 15-20 in Lorton, Va. — were Colorado State University golfer Cameron Harrell (68-65–133) and University of Denver golfer Christopher Good (68-66–134). Fribbs (Douglas County), Harrell (Air Academy) and Good (Regis Jesuit) are all Colorado high school products.
    Like Fribbs, Harrell made two eagles on Monday, though both of his came in the morning round. The CSU junior-to-be went bogey-free in the afternoon. Good, a senior-to-be at DU, carded a dozen birdies overall on Monday.
    Three-time CGA Mid-Amateur champion Keith Humerickhouse of Eagle prevailed in a playoff that lasted five holes to nail down the first alternate spot.
    Sixty-five players were in the original field, competing for the three national spots at Monday's qualifier.
