Baskins qualifies for United States Public Links Championship

Josh Baskins, who just completed his senior season for the Wolf Pack men's golf team, is on his way to the United States Public Links Championships.
Baskins, a Redding, Calif., native, shot a 149 over 36 holes on Monday at Thunder Canyon to win a qualifying event by two strokes. The win advances him to the Public Links Championship in July in Kansas.
Baskins topped Fallon's Matt Vanderbeek by two strokes with the Wolf Pack's Derek Ream a shot back of Vanderbeek. With his third place finish, Ream is the second alternate.
The championship will be played July 14-19 at Sand Creek Station Golf Course in Newton, Kan.
The Nevada program has had its share of history with the Publinx event. Last year, Wolf Pack coach Jacob Wilner won the local qualifying, also at Thunder Canyon in Washoe Valley, and played in the championship in Virginia.
In 2006, the Wolf Pack's Casey Watabu won the championship, joining the likes of Brandt Snedeker, Ryan Moore and Hunter Haas as recent Publinx champions.
Baskins is set to return to the Wolf Pack in the fall as a student volunteer coach. He's had a strong summer as he and Wilner recently won the Northern Nevada Golf Association's Washoe County Two-Man tournament.
