Congratulations to Ryan Benzel for winning the Muckleshoot Casino Washington Open.  Ryan’s team also won the pro-am! We raised $90,000.00 for the Folds of Honor through this pro-am.  I cannot thank the 29 Golf Professionals enough for giving their time to play with the sponsors.  Thank you to Jason Mattaini and the Muckleshoot Casino for their tremendous support of our Section and The Folds of Honor. Each year the donation to the Folds of Honor grows and so does the Championship purse.  Please thank Jason next time you see him and please patronize the Muckleshoot Casino when you are in town!

Good luck to the 7 PNWPGA Section Professionals competing in the PGA Professional Championship held this month at Bayonet Golf Course in Seaside California.  312 PGA Professionals will tee it up in this National Championship.  Good luck to Russel Grove, Brian Thornton, Jerrell Grow, Trevor Fox, Bob Rannow, John Cassidy and Tim Feenstra. These professionals will represent us well and hopefully we will watch some of them at the 100th PGA Championship in August by finishing in the top 25 at Bayonet.

Finally, I hope you are all enjoying our new Section App.  I have been using it on a regular basis. It is very easy to use and has a ton of information.  Thank you PNWPGA staff for getting this up and running.

Enjoy the busy season, utilize our programs and play in a Section or Chapter event.


Thank you for growing the game,
