Live Thread: Mizzou Golfer Jace Long at the US Amateur Public Links Championships - Round of 32 and 16 is the middle of July, and there is not enough going on for me NOT to do one of these, RMN jinx be damned. Therefore, we will be tracking the progress of future sophomore Jace Long. Long did not play too often this past season, though he certainly came to the program with some acclaim last year. From my Reviewin' and Previewin' of 2008 on Men's Golf:

The biggest news for Mizzou from this past season might be who they expect on the links next season in their lone signee of Jace Long (Dixon, MO) Long is an extremely decorated junior golfer who is expected (and needed quite frankly) to make an impact on the squad.

At any rate, I will be following the action thanks to the fine folks at the USGA and this site, which seems to be kept pretty up to date. There could be up to two rounds today. Long was 7 shots better than his morning opponent Liam Logan (who won his match yesterday in 20 holes) in the two rounds of stroke play before match play began.

{edit} Jace Long defeated Liam Logan in 19 holes to move on to the Sweet 16. He will take on Sang Yi who was seeded 14th after stroke play (finishing four strokes behind Long) Yi has been very impressive in his two match play outings, winning 7&5 yesterday and 6&5 today.
