The field at the 2015 Washington State Hickory Open
Durel Billy, host professional for the Washington State Hickory Open, reports:
Fresh off of his come-from-behind Pacific Northwest Hickory Championship win (click here to see that story), Jim von Lossow was feeling very confident about his game and it showed. Making the turn in 38 on Saturday at The Home Course in Dupont, Wash. The 2015 WSHO Champion played a very steady back nine at 1 over par 37, for a new Home Course Hickory record of 75, at 5,865 yards par 72.
Paired with the 2014 Champion Grayson Giboney (who shot 83) and seven-time Champion Colin Gants (who shot 82), the field was not lacking in strong hickory players. Gants was quoted as saying, “it was a pleasure to witness Jim play the way he did today. He played beautifully, when he made a bogey or birdie his attitude remained the same.”
Ladies Champion Paula Anderson – 114
Novice Champion Torrin Westwood – 86
Senior Champion Galen Petersen – 86
Auld Golf Society Champion Barry Field – 90
