SHS grad third at Big Foot Invite

POST FALLS, IDAHO - 2008 Sunnyside High School graduate Justin Bos, now a member of the Columbia Basin Community College men's golf team, scored a third place finish earlier this week at the Big Foot Invitational, staged at two separate courses near Post Falls, Idaho.

Bos finished the two-day tourney at 5-over-par 149, three strokes back of the runner-up. The tourney medalist, Matt Epstein of Bellevue Community College, shot even-par 144 (70-74).

On the opening day of the invite last Sunday, staged at The Highlands Golf Resort, Bos cruised the 18 holes with a 1-over-par 73. The former SHS Grizzly golf standout started the day a bit rough, hitting the clubhouse turn at 4-over. On the back side, though, Bos made up ground in a big way. He notched four birdies while absorbing only one bogey to post a 3-under-par 33 on the final nine holes.

Day two of the tourney on Monday, with the venue switched to The Links Golf Course, Bos turned in a workman-like 76, scoring a pair of 2-over-par 38's on each of the nines.

The most memorable thing about his round on Monday, said Bos, was taking on The Links' ninth hole, a majestic 770-yard, par-5 challenge.

"I went driver, 3-wood, 3-iron to get there," he laughed. "It's an impressive hole," he said, adding he was only able to score a bogey.

The week prior to the Big Foot Invite, Bos competed in an NWAACC league match at Yakima's Apple Tree Golf Course. He carded a pair of 77's the two days, going 5-over on the front nine each day and shooting even-par on the back side both days.

The Columbia Basin Community College golfer returns to league play this coming Sunday and Monday at a conference match at Washington National Golf Course, located near Seattle.
