Fenske, Jonson, Francks among Bremerton City Am favorites

It snuck up without a lot of fanfare this year, but the Bremerton City Amateur golf tournament is being held at Gold Mountain Golf Club this weekend. The 36-hole tournament starts today and winds up Sunday. Looking at the tee times, the field looks to be down a bit from previous years, but there’s still some quality players.

Kitsap Golf & Country Club’s Scott Fenske, Carl Jonson and Dominick Francks are among the favorites. Francks, a past state 4A champion, is a senior at Olympia High and will play at Stanford next fall. Fenske won the tournament in 2005. Bainbridge’s Jonson just completed a solid freshman season at UNLV.

Tze Huang Choo, former Washington Husky, won the 2011 tournament but isn’t back to defend his title.


WHO WOULD you rather have batting leadoff — Ichiro or Willie Bloomquist? Ichiro’s hitting .270 with a .303 on-base percentage; Bloomquist is hitting .278 for the Diamondbacks with an OBP of .315.

SCOTT OSTLER of the San Francisco Chronicle writes about the mansion in the hills that Bremerton Olympian Nathan Adrian and three other swimmers share. Sounds like a pretty cool bachelor pad.

THE ODDS of qualifying for a U.S. Open are not great. Check out some of the golfers who will be trying to qualify for the June 14-17 U.S. Open at The Olympic Club in San Francisco during  various sectional qualifiers on Monday. Central Kitsap grad and former UW golfer Troy Kelly will be among the 132 golfers competing in the 36-hole qualifier at Columbus, Ohio. The number of golfers advancing from that qualifier have not been determined, but it will be likely be five or possibly six. Kelly will play in next week’s St. Jude’s Classic in Memphis, Tenn.

FREE FISHING weekend is June 9-10. No license required. No vehicle passes required. Just follow the rules.
