Knapp wins first Senior Amateur Championship

Octber 25, 2018
By Mike Dudurich


The 87th West Penn Golf Association Senior Amateur Championship became a casualty to the weather early in October when Allegheny Country Club became unplayable because of rain.

That necessitated the rescheduling of the event to Oct. 23 with the 36-hole, two-day championship becoming a 36-hole, one-day test of endurance and skill.

When the competitors arrived Tuesday, they were greeted by a sunny day, chilly temperatures, some strong, gusty winds and putting surfaces that were like glass.

Team WPGA retains Palmer Cup

LATROBE – For the first 18 years of the battle between club professionals from the Tri-State Section PGA and amateurs from the West Penn Golf Association known as the Palmer Cup, it was a very one-sided battle.

The WPGA team lost all of those first 18 and was working on a serious complex. But in 2014, the worm turned as the amateurs finally got a win. And guess what? They haven’t lost since.

Petrone wins 11th WPGA Women's Amateur Championship

SEWICKLEY -- She didn’t get off to a flying start, but Bella Petrone found a way to keep her game together and win the 11th West Penn Golf Association’s Women’s Amateur Championship at Sewickley Heights Golf Club last month.

Making bogeys on four of the first five holes wasn’t in the game plan for the sophomore at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Fla., but she steadied herself and outlasted Abigail Vietmeier of Chartiers Country Club by two shots by shooting a round of 76.

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.
