Happy 4th of July to everyone!

Summertime is here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I smell barbecues, flowers and all the goodness the sun brings out this time of year.

Thank you to Pronghorn and Head Professional Jerrel Grow for hosting this year’s Oregon Open Invitational.  Reid Hatley birdied the 54th hole to join the playoff, and with that he went on to win his first Pacific Northwest Section PGA major.  Thank you to our tournament staff and especially Molly Cooper. The time and travel that goes into making these events successful doesn’t go unnoticed.  Thank you for everything you do, Molly, for the members of our Section.

On another note, I have recently accepted a new position and will be leaving Iron Horse Golf Club effective August 31, 2019.  I have been name Director of Golf of The Summit Club in Las Vegas, Nevada ,which is a Discovery Land Project.  While timing is never right, this was the right time to make this big decision for my family and my career.  Sean Fredrickson will be moving up to President of the section as I vacate my seat on the board.  Rest assured that everything in the Section will be business as usual.

I want to personally thank everyone for their trust in me over my past 10 years of service to the Pacific Northwest Section.  I have met so many wonderful PGA Golf Professionals over the years and have enough memories to last a life time.
