From PNWPGAWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The earliest recorded scores of the Section Championship date back to 1936. In 2000 the Section Championship was combined with the CPC event and is now the Pacific Northwest Section PGA Professional Championship (PPC). The Pacific Northwest Section PGA Professional Championship is only open to PGA Members of the Section. Each year, a certain amount of places qualify for advancement to the National CPC. From 1997-2000 the CPC Qualifiers were separate from the winners of the Section Championship.

Most tournament wins: Jeff Coston (7), Charles Congdon (6)

Quotes

From Martin Pool, who provided the Seattle Times PDF's:

"The July 2, 1944 issue of the Seattle Times regarding the upcoming championship in 1944, includes the statement: 'Al Zimmerman of Portland, who won the sectional title last year, will not be on hand to defend his crown, as he is on service in North Africa.'"

"Initially this led to me think that Al Zimmerman, who won in 1940, 1941, and 1942 must have won for the fourth consecutive time in 1943, however, I do not think this was the case. After winning the 1942 championship, Al Zimmerman enlisted in the Navy on September 16, 1942. It seems highly unlikely that he would have competed in the 1943 championship if indeed one was held."

"I think the writer of the July 2, 1944 article was mistaken when he said 'last year,' and should have said 'in 1942,' and Al Zimmerman would still have been the defending champion if the 1943 event had been cancelled."
