Tournament of Champions Kicks Off 2019 OGA Championships Schedule
The Oregon Golf Association’s 75th Tournament of Champions is set for April 13-14 at Gearhart Golf Links in Gearhart, Ore.
The invitation-only, season-opening event features champions of OGA Member Clubs from the past two years, as well as select eligible OGA champions from 2017 and 2018. There are three divisions in this weekend’s event – Men’s, Women’s, and Senior Men’s.
All three defending champions are in the 2019 field. Blake Seabaugh (Tigard, Ore.), Gretchen Johnson (Portland, Ore.), and Pat O’Donnell (Happy Valley, Ore.) each won their respective divisional titles in last year’s event played at The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club.
Johnson has won back-to-back Tournament of Champions, taking the title in 2017 at Arrowhead Golf Club in addition to last year’s crown.
Also in the field are Robbie Ziegler (Portland, Ore.) and Lara Tennant (Portland, Ore.), who each earned titles in their respective divisions at last year’s Oregon Amateur Championship.
There are 131 competitors in this year's field. The first groups tee off Saturday at 7:30am (PT).
