In making a stroke, the player must use clubs that conform to the groove and punch mark specifications in the Equipment Rules that took effect on 1 January 2010. Ping Eye 2 irons manufactured before 31 March 1990 with a groove spacing to groove width ratio of 2.3 to 1 are allowed for play under Rules of Golf, even when this Local Rule is in effect (See Model Local Rule G-2 in Committee Procedures).


The PGA of America uses a 5-year calculation to determine the spots we are playing for and purse calculations.

The top 3 finishers will advance directly to the 43rd National Car Rental PGA Assistant Professional Championship, held November 14 – 17, 2019 at the PGA Golf Club, Wanamaker Course in Port St. Lucie, FL.

Arrowhead GC

Situated on 135 verdant acres in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Arrowhead Golf Club remains the hidden jewel of Clackamas County. Guarded by old-growth forest, the 18-hole championship golf course meanders across lush meadows and rolling hills, crossing paths with the pristine Molalla River and Wrights Creek before beginning its final approach back to the clubhouse. Its demanding layout and manicured surfaces result in a dynamic playing experience.

History of the Championship

This year’s Assistant Championship marks the 43rd Anniversary as a National event but the PNW Section has been conducting the event since Fred Pelzer donated the trophy in 1965.

Last year, Bryce Fisher of Arrowhead GC won the championship by two strokes over Derek Berg of PNW Golf Academy, John Cassidy of Arrowhead GC, Shane Prante of The Home Course  and Bradley Lanning of University of Oregon.
