Larry Daniels of Seattle, Wash. put together one of the most spectacular final rounds in PNGA history to win the 47th Annual Pacific Northwest Golf Association’s Senior Men’s Amateur Championship at Black Butte Ranch – Big Meadow Golf Course in Black Butte Ranch, Ore. Noel Pumfrey of Victoria, B.C. made a late charge to win the 2nd Annual Super Senior Men’s Amateur Championship. A total of 144 players took part.

In the Senior Men’s Championship, Daniels started the day one shot back of leaders and playing partners, Chris Maletis of Portland, Ore. and Carey Watson of Sunriver, Ore. Daniels would make his presence known early and finished with a 7-under=par 65 to win by eight shots.

In the Super Senior Championship, Pumfrey started the final round one shot behind 36-hole leader Gay Davis of Portland, Ore. but Pumfrey drew even on the 17th hole and then made a birdie on the final hole.
