Perry Williams’ PGA career began in 1967 when he served as professional and manager at Lewiston CC.  A decade later, Perry became the head professional at Tri-City CC in 1977, and it was during his tenure at Tri-City CC when he began to get highly involved in what would become his passion, the Rules of Golf.  In 1982, Perry became the first chairman of the Pacific Northwest Section PGA Rules Committee.  After eleven years at Tri-City CC, Perry left to pursue a career with the PGA Tour as a rules official and tournament administrator, a position he retained until his retirement in 1997.  Perry’s passion for the Rules of Golf is infectious, and in 1994, the Section’s Board of Directors established the Perry Williams Award, given to the PGA professional who is recognized for a learned knowledge of the Rules of Golf and for their dedication to the Section’s Rules Committee.  In recognition of his achievements Perry was inducted into the Pacific Northwest Section Hall of Fame 2000.
