Go-for-broke style still nets McCaslin 79th Tacoma City Am championship

By his own admission, Lacey’s Jon McCaslin had no idea how he was
going to try and protect an eight-stroke leading heading into the final
round of the 79th Tacoma City Amateur.

So he went for broke – and came out of it OK.

Bombing drives of 330 yards on an Oakbrook Country and Golf Club
layout that demands precision over power, McCaslin shot a 4-over-par 75
Sunday to win the title by three strokes over defending champion Jarred
Bossio, of Olympia.

The 25-year-old McCaslin finished the three-round championship at
3-under 211. Bossio, who fired the day’s best round – a 1-under 70 –
was second at 214, followed by Puyallup’s Derek Barron (73) in third at
218, and Tacoma’s David Talcott (75) and Auburn’s Sean Packer (71) in a
tie for fourth at 219.

McCaslin became the 50th different champion of the event, dating back to 1931, and third consecutive first-time winner.
