History of the Championship

The Pacific Northwest Pro-Assistant Championship got off to an exciting start in 1992. It took the Progress Downs team of Jerry Minor and Ralph West SEVEN holes of sudden-death to finally shake the Royal Oaks duo of Steve Bowen and Michael Wilkerson.  After shooting 14-under at Tacoma Country and Golf Club, neither of the two teams could get a birdie putt to drop in the playoff.  The 1995 Redwood Golf Center team of Scott Williams and Mike Barnett still holds the tournament record after scorching the rest of the field with an 18-under 126 at McCormick Woods GC and winning by three strokes.  This championship, has fostering camaraderie between Head Professionals and Assistants, is one of the most popular events of the Pacific Northwest Section PGA.  In 2008, Head PGA Professional Steve Prugh and his Assistant Corey Prugh made history by being the first father-son duo to capture the title.
