Bellevue golf's Chad Hall is latest 'Mr. 63'

Arizona State’s Broc Johnson shot a 63 last season while golfing for the Green River Gators. Johnson ended the season as the NWAACC Baden Player of the Year. After firing his 63, there was much discussion if the score was the lowest in league history. All involved in NWAACC golf thought it was indeed a league record.
Now the league can add a new name next to Mr. Johnson in the record books. Chad Hall from Bellevue College tied Johnson’s 63 in the final day of the fall league match at Highlander Golf Course in Wenatchee.
Hall finished the tournament T4 due to a trip up in day 1 on the 17th hole.
Hall has long been a talented golfer waiting for the right moment to blossom and tie it all together. Hall hails from Battle Ground, Washington. In high school, he regularly won medalist honors in heads-up matches versus other schools but has never won a tournament outright with multiple schools. He did however place relatively well at District (2nd) and State tournaments.
After the Swanson Cup at Chambers Bay (where Hall finished 2nd with a 74), we got a chance to sit down with Mr. 63 himself and ask him a few questions. In conversation with Hall, we learned that he, like Broc Johnson, hopes to land at a 4-yr university in Arizona majoring in Communications. After college, Chad would like to work in the golf industry in some regard whether it be a touring professional or a course professional. Chad’s hobbies outside of golf have a direct correlation to his success with golf. His hobbies all seem to be fitness related, including lifting weights and cardio training.
Chad Hall -- Congratulations on being the newest Mr. 63 in NWAACC golf.
