PULLMAN — James Beale of Auckland, New Zealand, took the conservative approach on the 38th hole of the match, and that helped him beat Cole Madey of West Linn, Ore., to capture the 113th Pacific Northwest Men’s Amateur.

After the two golfers went 37 holes at Palouse Ridge with the match still tied, they came to the relatively short, 379-yard, par-4 second hole. Beale didn’t hit driver, and found the fairway and his approach found the fringe of the green for an easy two-putt par. Madey found the fescue off the tee and his pitch flew the green. He flubbed his first testy downhill chip, and then couldn’t hole out his second attempt, giving the title to Beale.
