Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club hosts Pepsi Northwest Women’s Open

Federal Way’s Claire Xu tied for low amateur honors

Aram Choi of Surrey, British Columbia, shot a final-round 4-under-par 68 to win the Pepsi Northwest Women’s Open at Twin Lake Golf and Country Club on Wednesday by one shot over Janelle Sua of Torrance, California.

The three-day tournament, featuring both professionals and amateurs, came down to the final hole when Choi needed to make a 3-foot par putt to keep her lead and win the championship by one shot. Choi won the tournament in 2016. Choi finished with a two-round total of 141 to win the $2,100 first-place check.

Sua made birdie on the final hole to get to within one and finished second at 142. Defending champion Sirene Blair of South Jordan, Utah, was third at 145.

Former LPGA players Heather Drew (156) and Cindy Rarick (157) finished sixth and seventh in the tournament.
