Posted:

by Molly Cooper/PGA NW

SPOKANE, Wash. - Defending champion PGA Professional Tim Feenstra of Broadmoor GC (Seattle, WA) and PGA Professional Ben Nelson of Linden G&CC (Puyallup, WA) lead the Rosauers Open Invitational after firing first round scores of 64, 7-under par.

Amateur Eric Ansett from Manito G&CC (Spokane, WA) and amateur Derek Bayley from The Links GC (Post Falls, ID) are one back of the leaders with 65.

PGA Professional Troy Rodvold of Bellevue GC (Bellevue, WA) made a rare double eagle on #18.

Schedule of Play:

The Rosauers Open Invitational will continue tomorrow with tee times ranging from 7:30 am - 2:30 pm off # 1 and # 10 tees.  The Rosauers Open Invitational is a 54 hole individual competition with a cut after round 2 to low 65 PGA Professionals and ties plus all amateurs in that range.  Results will be emailed nightly at around 8:00 pm.  Tee times and results will also be posted nightly at www.pnwpga.com. 

History of the Championship:

The Rosauers Open Invitational has been a part of the PNW PGA tournament program since 1988. The famed golf tournament has been hosted at just two facilities....Indian Canyon GC and MeadowWood GC.  This year we return to Indian Canyon GC in Spokane, WA.

We have had some amazing champions since the event started.  Corey Prugh of Manito CC (2009, 2011 & 2013) and Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo G&CC (1997, 2006, and 2008) hold the record for the most wins.  Prugh also set the tournament record of 192.  PGA Professional Derek Barron of Tacoma Golf Center recorded Indian Canyon GC’s competitive course record score with a 59 in 2015.

Charity:

Proceeds from the Rosauers Open Invitational will benefit the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Spokane’s safe haven for children at risk of abuse and neglect.  The Nursery also provides counseling, education and referrals for parents of young children.  The 2014 event raised $105,000 for the charity with almost $2,500,000 raised through the years.

Golf Course:

Indian Canyon was built in 1935 for $200,000.  H. Chandler Egan, a member of the PNGA Hall of Fame, crafted the Canyon’s layout over the well treed hillside southwest of the Spokane River. 

Indian Canyon hosted the 1941 and 1984 Public Links Championships.  When Bill Welch was victorious in 1941, he concluded “After I played Indian Canyon, I never wanted to go back to Texas again.  I never saw a golf course that beautiful in my whole life…. I did return to Texas, but only to pack my bags and move to Spokane.” 

This municipal track has been annually rated among Golf Digest’s “Best Public Courses”, “Best Affordable Courses”, “Best Golf Courses You Can Play”, “Best in State” and taken individually, some holes rank with the best holes found on any course – public or private – in the region.  Indian Canyon’s lofty acclaim is well deserved.

The Section:

The Pacific Northwest Section includes 1,100 PGA members and apprentices in Washington, Oregon, Northern Idaho, Western Montana and Alaska.  The Rosauers Open Invitational is one of six major championships conducted by the Section.
