Colin Inglis of Shadow Hills Country Club won the Pacific Northwest PGA Professional Championship last week, spinning 13-under for three days at Arrowhead Golf Club in Molalla.
Inglis, a Churchill High School graduate, shot rounds 64-68-68-200 and won the 54-hole event three shots ahead of Austin Hurt of Wing Point Golf and Country Club in Bainbridge Island, Washington.
Last week’s victory crowned an outstanding summer for Inglis, who won the Rosauers Open Invitational in July and landed in the top 10 of all section majors. He took home the $ 10,000 prize pool and will advance to the 2022 PGA Professional Championship at OMNI Barton Creek Resort and Spa next April in Austin, Texas.
Next spring’s top 20 national events will automatically qualify for a spot in the 104th PGA Championship at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Inglis, whose younger sister Caroline played for the Oregon Women’s Golf Team, finished 10th in the 2007 OSAA Class 5A State Championship as a senior.
