Hatley wins pair of Mid-Am titles

Updated: October 1, 2018

Reid Hatley of Hayden Lake, Idaho shot rounds of 68-72 to win the 9th Washington State Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship, held at the Rope Rider course at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Wash.

On a blustery day where just one player finished with a score under-par, Hatley was able to snag the lead after three holes and never looked back. Hatley had started the final round in solo second place, one shot behind leader Jacob Koppenberg of Bellingham, Wash. who finished in second place.

Hatley and Koppenberg were the only players in the full field of 120 to finish the championship under-par.

This marks the second time in three years that Hatley has won this championship, after winning previously in 2016. Hatley has been named the WSGA Mid-Amateur Player of the Year the past three years (2015-17) and qualified for the 2018 U.S. Mid-Amateur. Earlier this year, he tied for sixth in the Mexican Amateur, made it to the quarterfinals of the PNGA Men’s Amateur, and was a member of the three-man WSGA team that won the Morse Cup competition of the 2018 Pacific Coast Amateur, held last month at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.

• Hatley shot rounds of 73-71-71 to win the 34th Pacific Northwest Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship, held this week at Crane Creek Country Club in Boise, Idaho. Hatley was the only player in the field to finish under par, and his three-day total of 215 was five strokes better than Erik Hanson (Kirkland, Wash.) and Jesse Hibler (Meridian, Idaho), who tied for second at 200.
