Emersyn Walker of Lakewood and Kailey Bass of Gig Harbor combined for a 3-under par 70 to take the lead after the first round of the 21st Washington Women’s Four-Ball Championship hosted by Rainier Golf & Country Club in Seattle.
The duo of Walker and Bass started on the first hole and got off to a fairly pedestrian start, shooting a 1-over 37 on the front nine before catching fire on the back nine and firing a 4-under 33 to close the round.
The format for the Women’s Four-Ball is 36-hole stroke play (gross and net). The field is divided into flights based on team handicap.
Last year, the championship was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Washington Women’s Four-Ball is one of 14 championships conducted annually by WA Golf.
