Corey Prugh wins Rosauers Open for the third time

Updated: August 1, 2013

The Pacific Northwest Section of the PGA might as well re-name the Rosauers Open Invitational to the Corey Prugh Open Invitational. The Manito Country Club (Spokane) assistant professional won the tournament for the third time, shooting a final-round 67 to win by one shot.

Interestingly, Rob Seibly finished second in the tournament was the low amateur one shot behind – and Seibly is an amateur from the club where Prugh is an assistant pro.

Prugh collected a first-place check of $11,000 for winning one of the season’s major championship for professionals and amateurs in the Pacific Northwest. Prugh birided the 17th hole to take the outright lead and then pared the 18th hole and final to secure his third Rosauers victory.

Kyle Kelly of Tamarisk Country Club, Shane Prante of Tom’s Golf Center and Matt Cowell of Lake Padden finished tied for third at 201. Cowell led after the first round with a blazing start of 61.

Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo Resort was sixth at 202 while amateur Hank Frame of The Links and Russell Grove of Avondale were tied for seventh place at 203, four shots behind.
