UW's Brock Mackenzie Wins Pacific Coast Amateur Championship

Aug. 9, 2002

San Diego - Washington junior golfer Brock Mackenzie (Yakima) didn't accomplish his goal of breaking 70 in the final round of the 36th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship at the San Diego Country Club, but his even-par 72 was just enough to hold off Dan Swanson of Surrey, British Columbia, by one shot for the prestigious title.

Mackenzie, a second-team All-American last season and the 2001 Washington State Amateur champion, became the second Washington state resident in a row to win the Pacific Coast Amateur. Corey Prugh, also a junior at Washington, won the event last year.

Mackenzie was remarkably consistent throughout the tournament, posting rounds of 70-71-70-72 -- 283, which was 5 under par over the 6,890-yard, par-72 layout.

Swanson tried to mount a charge but came up a shot short after a final-round of 71 and a 284 total. Brian Hughes of Portland, OR, and Keith Decker of Martinsville, VA, finished another shot back.

'I never was in any real trouble all day,' said Mackenzie after his round. 'I just played solid golf again; in fact, it's amazing how similar my rounds were all week.'

Mackenzie had three birdies and three bogies on his round but thought he blown the tournament when he bogied the 428-yard, par-5 finishing hole. 'I drove it in the left rough on a downslope,' he said later but before the rest of the field was in. 'I had no chance to get to the green. If I lose the tournament because of that hole, it will leave a very sour taste in my mouth.'
