BOONTON, N.J. – Amateur William Huang finished as medalist in qualifying for the 102nd Open Championship on Tuesday afternoon at Knoll Country Club (West), shooting a 2-under par 68. 

“I just kept it in play all day,” Huang reflected.

“You need to try to shoot the lowest score, medaling or not. It doesn’t really matter if you go out and play a good round that gives you confidence. By hitting the shots that you want to, making putts whenever you want to, that gives you confidence.”

Huang played a consistent game, carding four birdies and just two bogeys.

“Medaling or not, it doesn't really matter where I finished in the field. If I play good, it gives me confidence going to the next round.”
