~History of the Pacific Northwest Pro-Am Championship~

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.

Last year, PGA Professional Corey Prugh of Manito G&CC and his amateur Reid Hatley of Hayden Lake CC came out on top and won the title of Pro-Amateur Champions.  The duo’s round consisted of eight birdies which helped them win 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.
