Mill Creek grad Emilie Burger, who plays for Georgia’s women’s golf team, shot 4-under-par 67 Thursday to earn low medalist honors in U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links qualifying at The Oaks Course in Covington.

Burger shot even-par 71 in the same qualifier last year, when she also was low medalist. Her Tuesday score of 67, five stroke better than the runner-up, earned a trip to the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championships in Bandon, Ore., from June 27-July 2.
