FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – Rising sophomore Jordan Ferreira (University Place, Wash.) shot an even-par 72 in yesterday's final round to win the 21st Washington State Women’s Amateur by four shots. The championship was conducted by the Washington State Golf Association, and were held concurrently at Port Ludlow (Wash.) Golf Club. 

In yesterday's final round, Ferreira, who had started the day with a five-shot lead, kept to her game plan on the tight, tree-lined fairways of Port Ludlow by using her driver only twice.

“I wasn’t playing conservative,” she said in her post-round interview. “That’s just what this course calls for. Fairways and greens, and make a putt once in a while.”

Ferreira was the only player in the field to finish under par for the championship, continuing her stellar play this summer. Last month she set a course record in qualifying for last week’s U.S. Women’s Open. She missed the cut at Pinehurst, and came directly to Port Ludlow from North Carolina.

“It was a really hard golf course,” she said of Pinehurst No. 2. “But, yes, it was a great experience.”  

Ferreira is a two-time WSGA Junior Girls’ Player of the Year. (Watch her post-round interview here.)
