The 3rd annual Washington Mixed Chapman Championship will be held August 24, 2020 at Lake Spanaway Golf Course in Tacoma, Wash. The 18-hole championship, which will consist of a full field of 48 sides, is being conducted by Washington Golf (WA Golf).
The championship is open to sides of amateur golfers who have an up-to-date USGA Handicap Index issued by a WA Golf member club not exceeding 36.4 for males and 40.4 for females, and are members in good standing of a WA Golf member club. Each side must have one male player and one female player. There is no age requirement or limit, and teams are divided into flights based on course handicap.
The championship will have gross and net champions and will be played in a Chapman stroke play format, with two players playing as partners, each playing from the teeing ground and each player playing his or her partner’s ball for the second shot. After the second shot, including par-3 holes, partners select the ball with which they wish to score and then play that ball alternately to complete the hole.
In last year’s championship, Buddy Peltier of Bothell and Susan Craven of Snohomish teamed up to shoot 3-over par 75 to win the title, which was held at White Horse Golf Club in Kingston, Wash. The team of Sai Liu of Edmonds and Ping Song of Lynnwood were the net champions, with a 7-under par 65.
