Updated: November 1, 2011

The top amateurs in the Pacific Northwest did something at this year’s Hudson Cup that no other amateur team had done since 1978 – they beat the professionals.

The amateurs held off a late rally by the top professionals in the Northwest winning 10 1/2 to 9 1/2 in the 63rd edition of the Hudson Cup at Oswego Lake Country Club, a Ryder Cup-style event featuring the top amateurs and professionals from the NW.

In the 20th edition of the Senior Hudson Cup, the professionals earned a narrow victory against the amateurs with a two-day point total of 10 1/2 to 9 1/2.

The Charles Congdon Award for top amateur went to Bill Winter and the Larry Lamberger Award for top professional was presented to Corey Prugh. In the Senior Matches, The Bill Eggers Award for the top amateur players was presented to Kent Brown while professional Steve Prugh was bestowed the Bob McKendrick Award.
