Erwin’s three day score of 197 tied the previous tournament record that Chuck Milne of Vanco Driving Range set back in 2005.

Low amateur honors went to Jay Sutton of Banbury GC (Eagle, ID) who finished in fifth place.

PGA Professional Rob Gibbons lead his team of Pat O’Donnell, Denny Taylor, Dan Craven to victory via the USGA tie break procedure.

Since its induction in 1996, the Senior Oregon Open has grown to be the premier senior golf tournament in the Northwest.  This event draws the best players ages 50 and over from all over the Pacific Northwest Section.  The popular Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton, OR is hosting the Open for the twelfth consecutive year.

With the praise and popularity that the resort received the past eleven years, the Section was eager to reschedule the same venue.  The golf course is designed by John Steidel and is nestled at the base of mountains and wide open terrain.  Wildhorse Golf Course is modeled after a traditional Scottish links-style course with plenty of bunkers and tall grass lurking to make you work a little harder than usual.
