At the 36th Pacific Northwest Senior Team Championships, Erik Hanson of Kirkland, Wash. and Craig Larson of Tacoma, Wash. won the Men’s Senior Team title; John Gallacher or Burnaby, B.C. and Gudmund Lindbjerg of Port Moody, B.C. won the third PNGA Men’s Super Senior Team; Ginny Burkey and Leilani Norman, both of Eugene, Ore., successfully defended their title in the Women’s Senior Team; and Mary Ryan of Renton, Wash. and Sun Douthit of Steilacoom, Wash. won their third title in a row at the third PNGA Women’s Super Senior Team.

The four championships were held on the Olympic and Cascade courses at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Wash. and were conducted by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA). Each was played in three successive rounds of Four-Ball, Chapman and Four-Ball formats.

Looking for their third Men’s Senior Team title in a row, Hanson and Larson entered the day with a three shot lead and combined for a final round 5-under par 67 in the Four-Ball stroke play (Best-Ball) format to clinch a four shot victory.
