Pacific's Meth beats future Longhorn Ghim in playoff to win US Amateur Public Links

Byron Meth beat Doug Ghim in the first playoff hole after blowing a three-hole lead down the stretch to win the U.S. Amateur Public Links championship on Saturday.

Meth, who plays for the University of Pacific, evened the match on the 36th hole of regulation at Sand Creek Station Golf course when 18-year-old Ghim, who is heading to the University of Texas, made double bogey.

Ghim had taken the lead with an eagle on the 35th hole.

Playing the par-5 10th in the playoff, both found the fairway off the tee. Ghim then hit into tall grass around a water hazard. He punched and took a bogey. Meth hit the green in regulation and two-putted for the win.

The match was also even after the first 18 holes.
