Hatley wins at
Reid Hatley of Hayden Lake shot rounds of 73-71-71 to win the 34th Pacific Northwest men’s Mid-Amateur Championship, which concluded on Friday at Crane Creek Country Club in Boise.
“It’s a five-shot win, but it was really a lot closer than that coming down the home stretch,” Hatley said. “I kind of separated myself from 13 to 18, but you can’t relax on any of the holes, every single one is a challenge.”
Hatley was the only player in the field to finish under par, shooting a three-day total of 215 to win by five strokes over Erik Hanson of Kirkland, Wash., and Jesse Hibler of Meridian, who tied for second at 220.
