Skyline alumnus wins Bellingham Amateur golf tournament
September 11, 2012
After a weekend on the links at Lake Padden golf course, Jake Webb, a 2008 graduate of Skyline High School, took first place at the Bellingham Amateur golf tournament.
Webb, a redshirt senior for the team at Western Washington University, was the only golfer out of the tournament’s 33 Division I players to play all three rounds under par. The first day out, he shot a 70 and improved that score by one stroke the following day with a 69. Webb finished the final round Sept. 3 at 71 to bring his tournament total to 210.
This was not the first time he shot a 210 at the Bellingham Amateur. Last year, Webb ended with the same total. However, it was still one stroke behind the lead and he went home in second place. But this time around, he secured the victory with a four-stroke lead over fellow Western Washington player and second-place finisher Craig Crawford.
