Fuhrers win Net Division in Father & Son Championship

Posted August 5, 2009 - Western Pennsylvania Golf Association - Contact



When one thinks of the Fuhrer family and their golf games, it's scratch. Frank, Jr., and his brother Richard, were both very good players, good enough to win the 1960 Brothers Championship. Their sons, Frank, III, (Frank, Jr.) and Steve (Richard), have both won WPGA championships. Frank III, made the USGA's 1981 Walker Cup team among his many achievements.

At Edgewood in the 2009 Father/Son, Frank, Jr. and Frank III had a team handicap of 13 in the Chapman format. Their 75 netted to 62, good for a one stroke victory in the Net Division. At age 83, Frank, Jr., may be the oldest person ever to win a WPGA competition. Congratulations to this notable golf family.
