Blog 277 - Terrific Start for Bellingham Golfers at Northwest Open

Luke Bennett
Three golfers from Bellingham finished the first round of the 110th Northwest Open inside the top ten yesterday. Bellingham Golf and Country Club's Matt Rawitzer is tied for tenth after a three-under 69 on the 7,025-yard Dan Hixson-designed course at Wine Valley GC in Walla Walla; Lake Padden professional Matt Cowell continued his fine form, shooting a 68 to finish the day tied for fifth; and part of a four-way tie for the lead is Padden's Director of Instruction Luke Bennett on 67.
A little lower down the leaderboard, WWU junior Mark Strickland is T45 after a 74, and Kyle Schrader tied for 84th on 77.
Sharing the lead with Bennett are Casey McCoy, Mike Kasch, and 2011 champion Corey Prugh.
