Guess the birdies and win at Encompass Boeing Classic contest

Snoqualmie Ridge 5-year-old Mia Rogers, sitting in the lap of her father Tom, watches Tuesday as PGA Champions Tour legend Frank Funk tees off during the Charles Schwab Youth Clinic, one of the events associated with the fifth annual Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. One of 180 children attending the clinic, Mia had participated in a golfing summer camp at Encompass earlier this summer. Her favorite part of golfing? “Hitting,” she says. Encompass has had a many-faceted presence in events leading up to and during the Boeing Classic, which culminates this weekend. - Courtesy photo
