Ward wins putts segment


July 26, 2018

Jacob Ward, 11, Colfax, topped the putting portion of the putt, chip and drive golf competition July 18 at the Golfland par-three course in Pasco. The event was a local round to qualify for the national event, which is sponsored by the PGA.

Ward finished with 55 points in the overall event, but fell short of qualifying for the sub-regional round for his age class. Points are awarded for all three events and the top point winners qualify to advance.

The putting segment requires entrants to putt from distances of six, 15 and 30 feet. Ward dropped the six-footer, came within a foot of dropping the 15-footer and three feet of dropping the longest putt.

Ward’s sister, Kaitlynn, placed third in her age division in the chipping part of the competition. It required entrants to attempt three chip shots from 15 yards away from the pin.

They are the children of Spencer and Kris Ward.
