PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State's Jordan Madison captured the 104th Pacific Northwest Amateur Championship 4 and 3 over Washington's Travis Andrews in the final at the Oakbrook Golf and Country Club in Lakewood, Wash., Saturday, July 16.
During the morning competition, Madison and Andrews exchanged leads three times, finishing the first round with Andrews leading by one.
The competition remained tight through the afternoon round, as Madison birdied the eighth before taking the lead for good on the 27th hole of play. Madison, who will be a redshirt junior in 2005-06, won four consecutive holes (Nos. 8-11) during afternoon play, making par on the 9th, and birding the 10th, 11th, and 14th. Madison's birdie on No. 14 gave him a 4 up advantage with only four holes to play. Both players made par on the 33rd hole (No. 15), clinching the title for Madison.
The championship, which was won by fellow Cougar David Fern in 2004 and by Tiger Woods in 1994, took place July 11-16. The 161-person field competed in 36-holes of stroke-play qualifying with the top 64 advancing to single-elimination match play.
Madison opened the event, July 11, with a 6-under 65 to tie for the lead after the first day of stroke play, where he shot two eagles and four birdies.
