Oregon’s Brandon Kearney wrapped up a wire-to-wire victory by shooting a 2-under-par 70 to win the Northwest Open at Wine Valley Golf Club in Walla Walla.
It was Kearney’s biggest win as a PGA professional from Bend Golf and Country Club. He finished at 12-under 204, good enough for a three-stroke win over Darren Black (71) and Derek Barron (70) at 207.
Barron is a Puyallup product who teaches out of Tacoma Firs Golf Center.
The low round of the day belonged to Tacoma’s Todd Erwin, who shot 69 and placed 12th at 211.
