Former Seattle U player wins Seattle City Amateur

Updated: August 1, 2017

Kyle Cornett, who finished his senior season with the Seattle U golf team in May, chipped in for an eagle on the third hole of a three-way playoff at West Seattle Golf Course to win the Seattle Amateur on Sunday.

Cornett was seven shots behind through eight holes in the third and final round. He eagled No. 9 and 12 and birdied No. 18 to shoot a 69 and join a group at 3-under (209). Sean Packer eagled No. 18 to get to 3 under and Drew McCullough, the defending champ, birdied the 18th to make it a three-way playoff.

Packer was eliminated on the second playoff hole. On the third hole, which was the second time in the playoff they played No. 18, Cornett sailed his tee shot over the bunker and he was about 60 feet from the hole. McCullough missed a 30-foot putt for eagle that could have continued the playoff.

Dave Farnam, the eight-time Seattle Amateur champion, tied for seventh.
