Conrad Chisman is headed to the Junior Golf National Championships.
Chisman, a freshman at Stanwood High School, won the Seattle Regional Qualifier to advance to the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championships, which take place Nov. 15-17 at Koasati Pines at Coushatta in Kinder, Louisiana.
Chisman shot rounds of 67 and 70 to finish 7-under par at the Seattle Regional Qualifier, which was held Aug. 24-25 at Loomis Trail Golf Club in Blaine. He finished two shots ahead of the field to claim one of the two qualifying spots for nationals.
Chisman got his tournament rolling when he eagled No. 6 during the first round, then secured the victory when he had three birdies on the back nine during his second round.
Chisman was one of just eight freshmen to compete in the tournament, which is for boys ages 14-18.
