Nathan Smith sure knows how to make a return to competition.

After resting a pulled intercostal muscle since July, the four-time U.S. Mid-Amateur returned to action Wednesday at Williams Golf & Country Club in Weirton, W.Va. and blistered the course and the competition.

In his rounds of 64 and 66 that made him a five-shot winner over Rick Stimmel, Smith made 13 birdies an eagle and a single bogey. It wasn’t like Stimmel was chopped liver, making nine birdies, an eagle and two bogeys for rounds of 66-69.

The last time Green Oaks Country Club hosted the WPGA Senior Four-Ball Championship, Perry Graciano and Jim Crawford came out victorious. This year, however, not even their second-round, 63 was going to catch the winningest team in WPGA Senior Four-Ball history, John Jones and Joe Corsi.

The duo finished the 36-hole day with a blistering 12-under par total of 130 and captured their third title in four years.

Team WPGA wins Williamson Cup again for first three-peat

There is no truth to the rumor that says the annual Williamson Cup will be undergoing a name change and will be known as the Western Pennsylvania Golf Association’s Williamson Cup.

Although considering how the locals have dominated the elite regional event, it might be something to consider.

Hall of Fame

Western Pennsylvania has a lengthy, rich and storied history.


The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association celebrated its centennial in 1998. Part of this celebration was to recognize area golfers and contributors who had an impact on our history. The Western Pennsylvania Golf Hall of Fame was established in 2013 to celebrate this history. The inaugural class consisted of William C. Fownes, Jr., Jock Hutchison, Arnold Palmer, Carol Semple Thompson, and Lew Worsham.

Scholarship Fund

Founded in 1941, nearly 700 students have received a scholarship.


The WPGA Scholarship Fund was founded in 1941 and awarded two scholarships to the University of Pittsburgh and another to Duquesne University. The first Caddie Welfare Committee surfaced in 1927 and addressed issues to benefit of caddies at the various Member Clubs of the Association. Fourteen years later the movement secured enough money to sponsor its first scholars.

Sponsors

Thank you to the supporters of the Western Pennsylvania Golf Association.
