Chan Kim, a sophomore at Arizona State and the 2008 Arizona Amateur
champion, birdied his final hole to win the 43rd Pacific Coast Amateur
Championship at The Gallery Golf Club in Tucson, Ariz.

Kim’s 17-under-par 271 total was one stroke better than Zack Sucher,
of Mobile, Ala., who held at least a share of the lead in each of first
three rounds before losing it late to Kim.

Tacoma’s Andrew Yun shot the day’s best round – 7-under 65 – tying the course record, and finishing tied for fifth at 275.

In the three-play team competition, the Washington State Golf
Association (Richard Lee, Jarin Todd and Dan Whitaker) won with a total
of 281, edging the Pacific Northwest Golf Association (Andrew Putnam,
Cameron Peck and Darren Wallce) by one stroke.

Next year’s tournament will be held at Eugene Country Club.
