Jackson finishes fourth in Sunnehanna Amateur

Call it another step in the evolution of Palmer Jackson.

The soon-to-be junior at Notre Dame is a very accomplished golfer, one of the best in the nation.

And while he’s competed in and won a variety of amateur events, Jackson’s arrow continues to point higher and higher in the golf world.

He lit up the world of the 68th Sunnehanna Amateur Friday by producing nine birdies to go along with three bogeys and found himself playing in the last group of the day, right in the middle of the hunt.

Palmer Jackson stood outside the scoring area at Sunnehanna Country Club Thursday and offered his perspective on where he stood after two rounds of the 68th Sunnehanna Amateur.

“I think I’m still in this,” Jackson said. “Especially if I can get out and get a few early birdies, I can put some pressure on those top guys and then we’ll see.”

And see we did.

Friday afternoon, Jackson put on a clinic on a course that was playing terrifyingly difficult thanks to the firmness of the course and the winds association with an approaching storm system that could affect final-round play.

WESTMONT – Thursday was an interesting day at the 68th Sunnehanna Amateur at Sunnehanna Country Club.

Bright, sunny skies with breezy conditions made for sometimes confusion the players. The thick rough that has bedeviled the field continued to do so.

And when the sun had set on the second round of the historic event, the two most experienced players of the seven from the West Penn Golf Association were in the best position of the group.

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.
