Updated: May 31, 2024

The team from WA Golf won the 17th PNGA Lamey Cup, held the past two days at historic Seattle Golf Club. This is the fifth time WA Golf has won this event, which features 12-person teams from the four associations under the PNGA umbrella – Oregon Golf Association, British Columbia Golf, Idaho Golf Association, and Washington Golf.

The Montana State Golf Association became a member association of the PNGA earlier this year, and will be fielding a team in the PNGA Lamey Cup starting with the 2025 competition.

WA Golf finished with 15.5 points, Team OGA was second with 13 points, Team BC Golf third with 12 points, and Team IGA fourth with 7.5 points.

Leading the way for WA Golf were Johnny Carey of Seattle, Paul Mitzel of Quincy, and Andrew Von Lossow of Spokane, who all went undefeated in their matches, going 3-0-0.

The annual Ryder Cup-style team competition is held on a rotating basis throughout the region, with this year’s event being held in Washington and hosted by Washington Golf. Each of the four associations under the PNGA umbrella selected a 12-person team consisting of eight men and four women. The representation includes four mid-amateur men of 25 years of age or older, two men of 40 years or older, two senior men of 55 years or older, two mid-amateur women of 25 years or older and two senior women of 50 years or older.
