2019 Hogan Cup
The 2019 Hogan Cup will tee off this weekend at Riverside Golf & Country Club in Portland, OR August 10-11.
The Hogan Cup 36-hole team matches pit the best junior golfers from the Western United States and Canada against each other in a team format with the three lowest scores each day determining the team total. Awards are presented to the top three teams as well as the top three individuals in the field.
The event began in 1969 as a partnership between Riverside Golf & Country Club and the Oregon Golf Association in commemoration of the vast achievements and contributions to the sport by Eddie Hogan, Riverside’s long-time head golf professional. Hogan served the club from 1939 until his tragic drowning death in 1968. At its inception, the competition was between the Portland Metro All-stars and junior golfers representing the rest of the region.
Hogan, an Oregon Amateur champion and PNGA Amateur Champion, was credited for transforming the role of the golf professional, developing what is now considered the standard for the green grass pro shop. Hogan was also dedicated in helping the Oregon Golf Association develop its widely-recognized junior golf program.
Being selected to compete in Hogan Cup matches is an honor that has been bestowed to few individuals, and the excellence of past participants is indicative of the quality of the small, select field.
Hogan Cup alumni include tour players such as Bobby Clampett, Fred Couples, Joe Rassett, Jack Renner, Lennie Clements, Scott Simpson, Rick Fehr, Robert Gamez, Bill Sanders, Kirk Triplett, Jim Nelford, John Fought, Peter Jacobsen, Jeff Quinney, Casey Martin, Jason Gore, Tiger Woods, Ricky Barnes, and Bryson DeChambeau.
This year the Washington team will be represented by Akshay Anand, Patrick Azevedo, Daniel Tiscareno, Blake Kukula, and captained by WJGA Director Brady McMullin.
