Updated: November 1, 2013

The 16th annual Evans Cup of Oregon, Royal Oaks Country Club in Vancouver, Wash., and the 22nd annual Evans Cup of Washington at Overlake Golf and Country Club in Medina, Wash., combined to raise $275,000 to benefit the Evans Caddie Scholarship Program.

At the Evans Cup of Washington, PGA Tour star and Seattle native Fred Couples spent the day playing golf and joining the dinner afterward. Caddying for Couples was Evans Scholar Tim Dills, who is a sophomore at the University of Washington. Also joining the field was PGA Tour player Kyle Stanley, a native of nearby Gig Harbor, Wash.

The funds generated at these annual fundraisers help support the region’s Evans Scholars who attend the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, University of Washington, University of Notre Dame and University of Colorado. Currently, there are 49 young men and women Evans Scholars from the Northwest.
