LORTON, Va. (AP) -- Oklahoma State sophomore Jordan Niebrugge won the U.S. Amateur Public Links on Saturday at Laurel Hill, beating California junior Michael Kim 1 up in the 36-hole final.

The winner traditionally receives a spot in the Masters, if still an amateur.

The 19-yeare-old Niebrugge, from Mequon, Wis., was 1 up after the morning round and increased the margin to four in the first six holes in the afternoon.

Kim, the 20-year-old Walker Cup player from Del Mar, Calif., rallied with birdie wins on the 27th, 30th and 31st. They halved the final five holes, with Kim virtually ending any chance of extra holes when he hit his second shot on the 36th into the water.
