SEATTLE -- Several Huskies started prestigious amateur tournaments on Tuesday, including incoming freshman Kevin Kwon who shot 8-under 64 to grab the first round lead of the 2013 Canadian Boys Championship at Timberwolf Golf Club in Sudbury, Ont.

Kwon, of Pitts Meadow, B.C., holds a three-stroke advantage in the tournament that he finished runner up in 2012.

“When you shoot 64 it means everything is really working well for you,” said Kwon to GolfCanada.ca. “I hit the ball in the right places, I putted fantastic and didn’t make many mistakes so it was kind of like I was in cruise control.”

Kwon's scorecard was dotted with nine birdies and just one bogey. He carded five of those birdies on the front nine.

The 2013 Canadian Junior Boys champion will earn an exemption into the 2013 Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship taking place August 6-9 at Royal Colwood Golf Club and George Vale Golf Club in Victoria, B.C.

Back in American territory, UW senior Trevor Simsby opened the Western Amateur Championship at the Alotian Club in Roland, Ark. by shooting a 2-over 74. He is tied for 88th after the first round.

The top 44 players plus ties after Wednesday's second round will advance to match play, which runs Thursday through Sunday.

Recent UW grad Chris Williams is the tournament's defending champion. Williams will tee it up this week in the PGATour's Reno-Tahoe Open.
