Brandt Jobe emerged victorious at the Boeing Classic held Aug. 23-25 at The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge. He finished 18-under overall during the three-day PGA Tour Champions’ event and earned $315,000.

Runner-up Tom Pernice Jr. finished 15-under overall and earned $184,000.

Fred Couples — who nailed a hole in one on the 207-yard par 3 (the Screaming Eagle hole), over water and bunkers, on Aug. 24 — finished tied for third with Jerry Kelly. Both shot 12-under overall and earned $138,600 each.

The 15th annual classic is a fundraiser for the Benaroya Research Institute and other local charities. Virginia Mason was one of the main beneficiaries this year as well.
