Not really sure if Rachel Rohanna has been a big believer in the old say about being in the right place at the right time.

Chances are the Waynesburg native is a believer now.

She was just getting her 2022 season underway on the LPGA Tour, making her second foray onto the elite level of ladies’ professional golf. She got there by putting together a strong season on the then-Symetra Tour, finishing in the top 10 of the money list.

As a member of the top 10 finishers, she was invited to a dinner with a group from Epson, a company that three years ago partnered with Shaquille O’Neal, the gigantic former college and NBA basketball.

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.
