This week: Public can watch golf championship for free

Woods-80PULLMAN, Wash. – The public can watch for free through Friday as the region’s top men’s amateur golfers compete at Palouse Ridge Golf Club.

Past champions include Tiger Woods. After winning the 1994 championship, he said, “The PNGA Men’s Amateur will always be very special to me since it’s my first men’s amateur victory.”

The 113th Pacific Northwest Men’s Amateur Championship has a full field of 168 players, beginning with 36 holes of stroke-play qualifying July 6-7. The low 64 players will advance to single elimination match play this week. Learn more at http://thepnga.org/.

The contest is one of the oldest amateur championships in the world. Players compete for the Macan Cup named after golf course designer A.V. Macan, a member of the Pacific Northwest Golf Hall of Fame and winner of the championship in 1913.

This years’ field is headlined by several notable contenders, including Frank Garber of Kirkland, Wash., the PNGA Junior Boys’ Player of the Year; and Li Wang of Sammamish, Wash., the four-time Washington Junior Golf Association state champion.
