Winners Corey Prugh and Reid Hatley

PGA Professional Corey Prugh of Manito G&CC and his amateur Reid Hatley of Hayden Lake CC won the PNW Pro-Amateur Championship after posting a 62-64-126, 18-under par.  They won by three strokes over PGA Professional Matt Cowell of Lake Padden GC and his amateur Dylan Goodwin of Harbour Pointe GC  and PGA Professional Derek Siesser of The Creek of Qualchan  and his amateur Erik Olson of Riverbend GC.

Prugh has previously won this event back in 1998 as an amateur.  Hatley has previously won this event back in 2007 as a PGA Professional.

The history of the Pacific Northwest Professional-Amateur Championship has been timeless.  It all started when a young head professional named John Junor and his amateur partner won back to back titles at the magnificent Seattle Golf Club in 1924 and 1926 (no championship in 1925).  Professional Walter Pursey and amateur Harry Givan topped Junor in the late 30’s with a three-peat victory at Seattle GC twice and Alderwood GC once.  As the years went on, many great players etched their names into the record books as champions of this event.  Long time professional Don Bies and his partners have seen numerous championships winning three of them in 1961 at Glendale CC, 1964 at Seattle GC, and in 1966 at Yakima CC.  Other greats such as Bunny Mason (1963) and Jerry Mowlds (1969, 1978) have all had their share of the title.

The Pacific Northwest Pro-Amateur Championship is a two-man team competition with one professional and one amateur playing a four-ball format.
