NOTES:
One of the oldest United States Golf Association events, the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship will be held for the 87th time this year. The championship's prime mover was James D. Standish Jr. of Detroit, who convinced his colleagues on the 1922 USGA Executive Committee that the time was right for such a grass-roots competition. Standish pointed to the public-course golfer, whose ranks were swelling following World War I, and to the growing number of municipal and daily-fee courses in America.

The first championship was conducted at the Ottawa Park Course in Toledo, Ohio. The USGA had no way of knowing how many players to expect, but a satisfying 140 entries were received. Less than half that number wore golf shoes. The first champion was Edmund Held of St. Louis, who joined a private club soon after his victory and thus became ineligible to defend his title in 1923. In 1923, the first team championship was conducted at the same time as the individual competition. East Potomac Park in Washington, D.C. was selected as the site, causing a great deal of excitement in the nation's capital. President Warren G. Harding, a golf enthusiast, donated the team trophy. Harding wanted to enter the championship himself, but time didn't permit, and besides, he was a member of at least one private club, which would preclude his entry. That those earliest championships drew upward of 18 teams representing cities from coast to coast was a tribute to the spread of public-course golf in America.

From the initial entry of 140 players, the yearly annual entry has surged to as many as 6,000 competitors or more. The championship has also been a springboard for the likes of U.S. Open champions Ed Furgol, Tommy Bolt, and Ken Venturi; British Open champion Tony Lema; PGA champions Dave Marr and Bobby Nichols; and Masters winner George Archer. In 1959, it produced the first African-American winner of a USGA championship in William A. Wright, who later became a teacher. Some of the past winners who have gone on to have professional careers are: Jodie Mudd, Billy Mayfair, David Berganio Jr., 2010 PLAYERS Champion Tim Clark, 2008 Masters champion Trevor Immelman, D.J. Trahan, Chez Reavie, two-time winner Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker. Immelman became the first Public Links champion to win a professional golf major with his victory at the Masters in 2008.

The USGA accepted 3,034 entries for the 2012 USAPL and 2,822 entries for the 2011 championship. The record for entries was set in 1998 with 6,300. This will be the first USGA championship to be held in the state of Utah. There are two courses at Soldier Hollow. The championship will utilize 17 holes from the Gold course and one from the Silver. At 7,670 yards, this will be the longest venue in U.S. Amateur Public Links history.

Last year, Corbin Mills parred the first extra playoff hole to defeat Derek Ernst in 37 holes at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon. Mills, 21, of Easley, S.C., became the first qualifying medalist to win the APL since fellow Clemson Tiger D.J. Trahan claimed the title in 2000, also in 37 holes.

Lion Kim defeated David McDaniel, 6 & 5, in the 36-hole final in 2010 at Bryan Park in Greensboro, North Carolina. There was a nearly seven-hour weather delay, but, at 9:06 p.m. (et), Kim holed the winning putt for his first USGA title.

In 2009, Brad Benjamin toppled Nick Taylor, 7 & 6, in the 36-hole final to win at Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club in Norman, Oklahoma. Taylor was the stroke-play medalist, the low amateur at the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black and someone who trailed for only a few moments in his matches.

Colt Knost handled Cody Paladino in 2007, 6 & 4, to win the championship at Cantigny Golf Club. Knost went on to win the U.S. Amateur Championship in August of 2007, joining Billy Mayfair and Ryan Moore as the only players in USGA history to win the U.S. Amateur Public Links and the U.S. Amateur. Mayfair won this tournament in 1986 and captured the U.S. Amateur the following year. Moore and Knost won both the USAPL and the U.S. Amateur in the same year.

In 2006, Casey Watabu never trailed in his match against Anthony Kim, as he defeated the California-born player, 4 & 3, in their 36-hole match on the Olympic Course at Gold Mountain Golf Club. Kim is now a member of the PGA Tour and has three victories.

Clay Ogden rallied from a four-hole deficit in 2005 after the opening nine to defeat Martin Ureta, 1-up, to win at Shaker Run Golf Club in Ohio. On his way to the title, Ogden knocked off Michelle Wie in the quarterfinals. Wie had become the first female to ever qualify for a USGA championship which was traditionally for men.

The 2013 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship will be staged in Lorton, Virginia at Laurel Hill Golf Club from July 15-20.
