Nathan Cogswell of Kent, Wa. won the Puget Sound Amateur at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wa. for the second consecutive year.
Chambers Bay, the host of the 2015 U.S. Open, 2021 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball, and 2022 U.S. Women's Amateur, presented a final-round challenge for players with a steady mix of rain and wind brought on by the beginning of an atmospheric river that has drenched the Pacific Coast.
Cogswell posted the lone under-par 36-hole total in securing a two-shot margin of victory.
Cogswell entered the final round with a one-shot lead after a 68 at Lake Spanaway Golf Course in Tacoma, Wa. In the final round, the field battled the elements at Chambers Bay. Low final-round score at Chambers Bay was a 72 by local high school senior Akshay Anand. A final round of 75 earned Cogswell a second consecutive Puget Sound Amateur title.
Cogswell earned All-WAC First Team honors in the 2020-2021 season playing for the Seattle University Redhawks. In addition to his two Puget Sound Amateur wins, Cogswell won the 2020 Northwest Open Invitational. The Puget Sound Amateur is played annually at Lake Spanaway Golf Course and Chambers Bay. This year's Puget Sound Amateur featured a full field of 186 players.
