History of the Championship

The Pacific Northwest Pro-Am Championship 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. Don Bies holds the record for most Pro-Am titles (1961, 1964, 1966, 1984). Other greats such as Bunny Mason (1963) and Jerry Mowlds (1969, 1978) have all had their share of the title.
