Olympic College golf coach and McCormick Woods general manager Bjorn Bjorke won his second Washington Men's Mid-Amateur title at his home course in Port Orchard last month
Olympic College head golf coach Bjorn Bjorke won the 11th Washington Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship last month at McCormick Woods Golf Course in Port Orchard.
This is Bjorke’s second title in this tournament, also winning in 2013, according to a story published on the nwacscports.org website.
Bjorke shot rounds of 72-70 to win. He began the final round just one shot behind the leaders, but struggled with consistency in the beginning with a bogey on the second hole and double-bogey on the fifth. However, Bjorke’s familiarity with the terrain helped mid-course as he chipped in for an eagle 3 on the par-5 ninth. He torched the mid-course, going 5-under between holes nine and 13, and finished the back nine 3-under while stringing together three consecutive birdies on holes 11, 12 and 13.
“It feels great to win this title,” Bjorke said on the website. “This is my second title, and this feels great to win it on my home golf course.”
Bjorke is the general manager at McCormick Woods and the OC golf teams practice at the course often.
