Seattle golfer wins WSGA Women’s Am

Updated: August 1, 2017

Julianne Alvarez of Seattle shot rounds of 68-74-68 to win the 24th Washington State Women’s Amateur; Victoria Fallgren of Spokane won the 8th Washington State Women’s Mid-Amateur by nine shots; Yasue Alkins of Steilacoom, Wash. shot rounds of 74-76 to win the 18th Washington State Women’s Senior Amateur Championship; and Sun Douthit, also of Steilacoom, won the 4th Washington State Super Senior Women’s title.

All four championships were held concurrently at The Home Course in DuPont, Wash.

Alvarez, a rising junior on the University of Washington women’s golf team, went wire-to-wire in notching the victory in the Women’s Amateur, shooting a final round 4-under 68 on her 21st birthday.

She began the final round with a one-stroke lead over Kelly Hooper of Spokane, but served notice immediately with birdies on two of her first three holes in today’s final round and never looked back, making five birdies on the day against one bogey to win by four shots over second-place finisher, and UW teammate, Karen Miyamoto of Seattle, who had scorched the course with a final round 7-under 65, easily the best round of the championship.
