Bremerton, Wash. – Robert Davies of Bremerton fired a 3-over par 73 to take the lead after the second round of the 35th Washington Senior Men’s Amateur; while Chris Degrazia shot a 3-over par 73 to maintain his lead after two rounds of the 14th Washington Super Senior Men’s Amateur.

About Kitsap Golf and Country Club
Established in 1924, Kitsap Golf and Country Club is a classic Northwest layout nestled among the cedars and hemlocks of the Chico Creek watershed. The par-71 layout was re-designed in 1981 by Bill Teufel. This will be the first time the course has hosted either the Washington Senior Men’s Amateur or the Super Senior Men’s Amateur, but has previously hosted the Washington Men’s Amateur on three occasions (1957, 1974 and 1989).
