Olympia’s Peck claims Washington Men’s Am

Updated: July 2, 2013

Cameron Peck, a former national champion from Olympia, Wash., held on in the final round to complete his wire-to-wire victory in the 87th Washington State Men’s Amateur Championship, held at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash.

Starting the day with an eight-shot lead, Peck played a conservative round in difficult weather conditions, shooting a final round 6-over par 78 to go along with his pair of 69s in the first two rounds, good enough for a five shot victory over co-runners-up Ryan Earl of Fircrest, Wash. and Nicholaus Mandell of Kennewick, Wash.

Peck just finished his final year of eligibility at Texas A&M, and said he will turn pro just before PGA Tour Q-School in the fall. He won the 2008 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship.
