The sides of Ben Garrett of Seattle, Wash. and Erik Hanson of Kirkland, Wash. and Craig and Cody Roth of Bellingham, Wash. each teamed for a 6-under 66 to earn co-medalist honors at U.S Amateur Four-Ball Qualifying; while Montgomery Ferreira and Julia Bordeaux of Tacoma, Wash. combined for a 2-under 70 to earn medalist honors at U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Qualifying.

The Men’s and Women’s sectional qualifiers were held concurrently at Canterwood Golf & Country Club in Gig Harbor, Wash.

Also advancing from the Women’s qualifier is the team of Gretchen Johnson and Amanda Jacobs of Portland, Ore.

These two Men’s teams will now go on to compete in the 2019 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship, to be held May 25-29 at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Ore. The two Women’s teams will now compete in the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball, to be held April 27-May 1 at Timuquana Country Club in Jacksonville, Fla.

This is the second time Garrett and Hanson have qualified for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball after qualifying for the 2017 championship. Hanson has qualified for three U.S. Mid-Amateurs and was named WSGA Senior Men’s Player of the Year in 2016; Garrett won the WSGA Men’s Best-Ball Championship with partner Erik Olson in 2016.

This marks the first time the father and son duo of Craig and Cody Roth have qualified for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball. Earlier this year the Roths won their third WSGA Parent-Child Championship. Cody is a senior on the Western Washington University men’s golf team.
