Updated: October 2, 2010

Dominick Francks of Olympia, Wash. defeated Chris Babcock of Shoreline, Wash. 4 and 3 in the 36-hole championship match at the 56th PNGA Junior Boys’ Amateur Championship being held at Oakbrook Golf and Country Club in Lakewood, Wash.

Francks was finally able to wear Babcock down winning the first two holes of the final nine to take a 2-up lead with only seven holes to play. After halving the next two holes, Francks’ eagle putt on the par-5 14th hole was conceded after Babcock made bogey to give him a 3-up lead. A par was enough on the next hole for Francks to seal the title and give him a 4 and 3 victory.
