Lee maintains Husky dominance of WSGA men’s amateur

The trophy for the Washington State Golf Association men’s state amateur will still have a purple-and-gold glow about it.

Richard Lee, who will join the University of Washington men’s golf
team, made it three years in a row for the Huskies by capturing the
title Friday at The Links at Moses Pointe in Moses Lake.

Lee carded a final-round 1-over-par 73, but it was still good enough
to win the title by five strokes over three golfers, including
defending champion Joel Dahmen.

He finished at 13-under 275. Derek Berg, Jarin Todd and Dahmen shared second at 280.

Lee, the Covington resident who finished up at Bellevue Community
College, endured a rough start with a bogey on the second hole, and a
triple bogey on the par-3 third.

“My whole approach to start the round was to play steady golf, and
make them come to me,” said Lee. “But that’s not what happened.”

He made five birdies to erase the early difficulties.

“I could have fallen apart after that start,” said Lee. “I really started to grind it out. I stayed steady.”
