WASHINGTON MUTUAL SAVINGS BANK: GRANTS PASS POLICE LIEUTENANT WINS CHANCE TO PLAY GOLF WITH THE PROS

 PORTLAND, Ore., July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Washington Mutual Savings Bank:
 A Grants Pass police lieutenant today won a spot to play golf alongside the likes of Peter Jacobsen this summer at the Washington Mutual/Pacific First Bank Pro-Am of The Fred Meyer Challenge.
 Russ Bramblett, 46, who earlier this year decided he wanted to volunteer as a caddy at The Fred Meyer Challenge, won one of two "Play with the Pros" slots -- worth $4,500 each -- awarded by Washington Mutual. Robert Fisher of Mill Creek, Wash., won the second slot.
 Four amateur golfers and one PGA professional constitute a team in the Washington Mutual Pro-Am, which is Sunday, Aug. 22, at the Oregon Golf Club in West Linn, Ore. Amateurs are placed on teams based on their handicap to make teams as evenly matched as possible. Handicaps range from about 5 to 30.
 More than 7,500 people entered Washington Mutual's "Play with the Pros" contest, which was free to enter. This morning, Bob Miller of KEX radio (1190 AM) in Portland announced the two finalists' names on air and called the winners.
 "There's no doubt in my mind this will be a kick," said Bramblett, who has been playing golf for more than 30 years and has a 9 handicap.
 "I'll try to be playing better by the time of the event."
 Along with a round of championship golf with a PGA Tour pro, the winners receive VIP admission for two to the three-day Fred Meyer Challenge golf tournament, admission to related events and gifts.
 Washington Mutual, the sponsor of this year's Pro-Am of The Fred Meyer Challenge, is the largest consumer bank in the Northwest. On April 9, Washington Mutual acquired Pacific First Bank.
