Blog 265, 6/20/13 - Bellingham, Western Golfers Make Cut at WSGA Men's Amateur

Matt Rawitzer; T9
Bellingham's Matt Rawitzer and Kevin Stray have made the 36-hole cut at the 87th Washington State Amateur Championship being played at 7,126-yard Chambers Bay. Seven members of Western teams also survived for today's third and final round at the course being prepared for the 2015 US Open.
Rawitzer who recently graduated from Oregon State where he recorded a 74.59 scoring average during his senior year and was selected Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention, is currently tied for ninth after rounds of 77 and 72. Stray, meanwhile, is tied for 19th on eight-over 152.
Leading the Viking charge is Jake Webb whose rounds of 72 and 75 put him in a tie for third after two rounds. Also playing today are Dylan Goodwin (75, 75), Kyle Schrader (78, 74), Sandy Vaughan (74, 80), Mark Strickland (77, 77), Thomas Jun (77, 78), and Brian Barhanovich (82, 77).
Viking golfers Sean Packer, Dylan Stensland and Craig Crawford, and Bellingham's Kris Hunt missed the cut. 
Cameron Peck; 138 through 36
The tournament leader, ahead by eight shots after two very impressive rounds of 69, is Lacey's Cameron Peck who won the 2008 US Junior Championship and recently finished his four years at Texas A&M.
Peck carded two eagles in yesterday's round after making a dismal start. At four-over through seven holes, Peck was coming back to the pack in a hurry when suddenly everything clicked. Ater a three at the uphill Par 5 8th, he birdied the 9th, 11th, 13th and 14th, and holed a six-footer for a two at the Par 4 12th, before bogeying the 16th to finish with halves of 37 and 32.
