NEWTON, Kan. (AP) — In between his rounds Thursday at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, Michael Gellerman felt a little uncertain about his game.

After beating Jon Veneziano 3 and 2 later in the day, Gellerman was all smiles about making the quarterfinals an hour from his hometown of Sterling, Kansas.

Two more wins Friday, and Gellerman, a senior at Oklahoma, will be playing for the title.

"It was a fun day, but it was also very intense, a grind all day long," Gellerman said. "It's nice to play close to home because it gives me some sort of comfort. It's great to sleep in my own bed and eat my momma's cooking."
