Blog 228, 7/25/12 - Rawitzer Leads PNGA To Morse Cup Victory

Team PNGA: Rawitzer, Jonson, Fink.
The PNGA won the Morse Cup at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort today, holding off a fierce comeback by the Washington State Golf Association with a second and final-round 146 on the Bandon Dunes Course.
The three players representing the PNGA - David Fink, Carl Jonson and Bellingham's Matt Rawitzer - all shot one-over 73s and, with two scores from three counting, the team posted 146 to go with the 145 it shot on Bandon Trails yesterday when Rawitzer led the team with a fine level-par 72.
After a disappointing first-round 153, the WSGA, represented by Dan Whitaker, Jarred Bossio and former Viking Nick Varelia, bounced back with a five-under 139 thanks to a 70 from Bossio and 69 from Whitaker (Varelia shot 80, 76).
With a four-score total of 291, the PNGA won by one over the WSGA and ten over the Sun Country Amateur Golf Association from New Mexico and West Texas.

With rounds of 72 and 73, Rawitzer is currently in a tie for fourth in the individual Pacific Coast Amateur, three shots behind leader Gaston de la Torre of Brush Prairie. Bossio and Hawaii's Lorens Chan are tied for second on one-over 143. Rawitzer plays Bandon Trails in tomorrow's third round and Bandon Dunes in Friday's final round when he will be hoping to emulate an impressive list of past champions.
