Olympia, Silverdale golfers win crowns at Washington Am

Updated: June 30, 2011

Jarred Bossio of Olympia and Erynne Lee of Silverdale won the men’s and women’s championships at the Washington Amateur Championships.

Beginning the final round at McCormick Woods in Port Orchard with a four stroke lead, Bossio continued his solid play and started his round with seven straight pars before making birdies at Nos. 8 and 9.

He finished the day with round of even par 71 for a 72-hole total of 8-under par 280. The University of Idaho golfer combined for 19 total birdies on the week and said his strategy was, “to hit a lot of 3-irons” on the tight tree lined course.
With a birdie on the 54th hole the three-time WSGA Junior Girls’ Player of the Year and two-time WSGA Women’s Player of the Year, Lee sealed her victory at the 18th Washington State Women’s Amateur Championship being held at The Home Course in DuPont, Wash.

The field battled tough, windy conditions on the 6,066-yard setup during the final round, yet Erynne found a way to cap-off her first WSGA title with a final round 3-over par 75 that consisted of two birdies, three bogeys, and a lone double bogey.
