ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Back home in Washington, UCF's Reid Martin started his summer in fine fashion as he took the title at the Snohomish County Amateur on Monday. Martin, who recently completed his sophomore season with the Knights, finished the three-day event at the Everett Golf and Country Club at 10-under 204.

Martin fired a 2-under 70 during Monday's final round. His winning total of 204 was one of the lowest in tournament history. The event was in its 81st year.

At 19 years old, Martin is the youngster County Am champion in at least three decades.

In 2010-11, Martin appeared in six tournaments for the Knights, who claimed their third-straight Conference USA Championship crown and participated in the NCAA Regionals for the fifth-consecutive year. His best showing came in the fall at the Adams Cup of Newport, where he tied for fourth in Rhode Island.
