Wilner fires 73 in first round at Publinx

LORTON, Va. -- Nevada men's golf coach Jacob Wilner fired a first-round 73 at the first round of the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championships on Monday.

Wilner is tied for 59th after the first round and will tee off at 9:30 a.m. (PT) today for the second round of stroke play.

"I'm very pleased with my play in the first round," Wilner said. "This course is very long and, for the most part, I managed my game well. I'm in good position right now."

After today's second round at Laurel Hill Golf Club, the field will be cut to the low 64 scores for match play, which begins Wednesday. The 36-hole championship is scheduled for Saturday.
