Two weeks after playing at state, Huntington played in the Pacific Northwest Junior PGA qualifier in Woodburn, Ore., where he posted rounds of 69 and 67 to win at 8 under par. That earned him a spot at the Junior PGA Championship on Aug. 2-5 at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Palos Park, Ill., outside of Chicago.
He was back on the course Tuesday, shooting a 1-over- 73 at Stone Creek Golf Club in in Oregon City to qualify for the Oregon Amateur, which will be played later this month.
And this weekend, he will play in the Royal Oaks Invitational Tournament.
“Pretty much once the school year ends, I don’t get a lot of practice in,” Huntington said. “It’s just playing different tournaments week after week.”
His first experience at a high school state tournament didn’t go according to play. Huntington shot a 1-under 71 at Indian Summer Country Club in Olympia, but then carded a 75 on Day 2.
