It’s probably a considerable stretch to say Evan Long had a home-course advantage Wednesday at Quicksilver Golf Club during a U.S. Open local qualifier.

Yes, his dad and his uncle are co-owners of the course, but Long, who just completed his freshman year at the University of Minnesota, said he really hasn’t played the course all that much.

“Living an hour north of here, it was just very time consuming to play here,” Long said.

BEDFORD – It wasn’t what might be considered a typical finish to a golf tournament, but then it wasn’t a typical day for a golf tournament, either.

On a crystal-clear day at the Bedford Springs Resort’s Old Course, a strong, swirling wind blew almost constantly. To add a bit more excitement to the proceeds, significant gusts appeared out of nowhere and played havoc with the players.

And then there was Jimmy Meyers, a Pittsburgh Central Catholic senior, who eagled the 525-yard, par 5 ninth and birdied the 124-yard, par 3 10th to finish his second round. After an opening-round 70, Meyers made four bogeys and a double-bogey in a second-round 75.

Hall of Fame

Western Pennsylvania has a lengthy, rich and storied history.


The Western Pennsylvania Golf Association celebrated its centennial in 1998. Part of this celebration was to recognize area golfers and contributors who had an impact on our history. The Western Pennsylvania Golf Hall of Fame was established in 2013 to celebrate this history. The inaugural class consisted of William C. Fownes, Jr., Jock Hutchison, Arnold Palmer, Carol Semple Thompson, and Lew Worsham.

Scholarship Fund

Founded in 1941, nearly 700 students have received a scholarship.


The WPGA Scholarship Fund was founded in 1941 and awarded two scholarships to the University of Pittsburgh and another to Duquesne University. The first Caddie Welfare Committee surfaced in 1927 and addressed issues to benefit of caddies at the various Member Clubs of the Association. Fourteen years later the movement secured enough money to sponsor its first scholars.
