Joseph Fryer, who signed a letter of intent to play golf this coming fall at Western Washington University, finished off a dominating victory Friday in the 80th Seattle Amateur.

Fryer fired a 3-under-par 69 on the 6,800-yard West Seattle course in the third round and finished at a record 12-under 200 to win by six strokes. Fryer, who plays out of Harbour Pointe, led Kamiak High to the state Class 4A title in 2012 by finishing 10th individually, and has spent the past two years attending the Lee Westwood Golf Academy in England.

Tied for second were Andrew Whalen (67 Friday, the low round of the day), who plays for Northwestern, and Erik Olson (68), the 2004 champion.

After the first two rounds at Jefferson Park and Jackson Park, Fryer had a one-stroke lead over Grant Cole of Tam O’Shanter in Bellevue. Cole slipped to a 75 Friday, opening the path for Fryer’s easy victory.

Cole finished fourth at 207 while Sandy Vaughan (a 74 Friday), the 2012 champion, and Mark Strickland (72) of Western Washington University tied for fifth place.

Tyler Salsbury (71) of the University of Washington golf team was alone in seventh at 209.

Salsbury and Fryer were the only players under par in each of their three rounds this week.
