PNGA Senior Amateur

WHISTLER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (Thursday, June 22) -- William Wilms, 63, from Delta B.C. put together three solid rounds on two of Whistler’s toughest golf courses to be victorious in the 42nd PNGA Senior Men’s Amateur Championship.

Although Wilms was the most consistent player of the week, he was challenged today by low scores posted at Nicklaus North Golf Course in Whistler B.C. Wilms, who carded two consecutive rounds of 75, was forced into a playoff after making bogey on the last hole. Jerry Knudson of Eugene, Ore came back to put himself at the top of the leaderboard by carding an even par 71, forcing the playoff. Both players finished the event at 8-over par 223.

The sudden death playoff between Knudson and Wilms didn’t last long after Wilms, a member at Beach Grove GC in Delta B.C, put his tee shot down the middle allowing him to use his wedge and put the golf ball within six feet of the hole, where he made his putt for birdie on hole #1, a 355 yard, par 4. Wilms is one of British Columbia’s top senior amateurs. He was runner-up in the BCGA Senior Amateur in 1999.

Ed Bartlett of Meridian, Idaho won the Open Division after carding a 77 on Big Sky G&CC. Bartlett won the Open Division by five strokes. Bartlett, a member at Banbury GC in Meridian, Idaho held a four stroke lead going into the final round.

The Pacific Northwest Senior Men’s Amateur Championship is a 54-hole stroke play event conducted in two championship divisions, Open Division and Grand Division. Contestants competed for overall gross and net prizes in each division. The Grand Division is an individual competition and is focused on identifying the best senior amateur in the Northwest and played from a longer yardage. The Open Division is an individual and team competition that is played from a shorter yardage. The team competition is four-ball stroke play. Each contestant played two rounds at Big Sky G&CC and one round at Nicklaus North GC.
