Updated: August 30, 2012

Thunderstorms could not spoil the day for Craig and Cody Roth of Bellingham, Wash. as they claimed the title at the 4th Annual Washington State Parent-Child Championship conducted by the Washington State Golf Association (WSGA) at Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club.

The father and son Roth team got off to a slow start, making the turn at 2-over par 38, but lit the fire on the back nine making birdies on holes 10, 11, 13, 15 and 18 to offset a bogey at 14 to clinch the title in true champion form with a 2-under par 70.

Runners-up are the team of Rachel and Michael Lewis of Gig Harbor, Wash. with a round of 1-under par 71. Rachel, an incoming freshman on the Washington State University women’s golf team, just returned from the Ryder Cup Junior Academy in Florida, to play in this championship with her father who taught her how to play. Low net honors went to Kayla Monroe of Tumwater, Wash. and Ray Monroe of Union, Wash., who finished with a 9-under par round of 63.
