Pacific Coast Amateur: Washington wins Morse Cup Team

BANDON, OR (August 3, 2005) -- Paced by consistently strong play from Alex Prugh and Joe Lanza, Washington State Golf Association came from off the pace to capture its second consecutive Morse Cup Team Championship held in conjunction with the first two rounds of the 39th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

With the best two of three individual scores counting each day for the team total Washington State totaled 288 (2 over par) and finished three shots in front of Alberta GA. Colorado GA finished in third place at 293, a shot in front of co-first-round leaders Southern Nevada and British Columbia.

Washington State became the fifth association to win back-to-back titles and the first since Northern California GA won three in a row from 1992-1994.

Prugh had rounds of 72-70, while Joe Lanza posted consecutive 73s to lead the Washington State contingent. Defending Pacific Coast Amateur champion Michael Putnam shot 75-74, neither of which was needed for the team win.

ABOUT THE Pacific Coast Amateur

Although its present history only dates from 1967, the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship's roots make it one of the oldest amateur golf championships in American history. The first tournament was held on the links of San Francisco Golf Club at The Presidio, April 24- 27, 1901. Championships were held annually through 1911, all being conducted in California except for the 1909 championship, which was held at Seattle Golf Club in Washington. The Pacific Coast Amateur then ceased to exist, only to be reconstituted at Seattle Golf Club on August 10-12, 1967 with the Pacific Northwest, Northern California, Southern California, Oregon and Arizona golf associations participating.

Today, 15 member Pacific Rim golf associations comprise the Pacific Coast Golf Association. Players can be invited to this 72- hole stroke play event by their Pacific Coast G.A. member golf association, or as an individual.
