NORTH PLAINS, Ore. —The GOLF CHANNEL Am Tour of Portland continued their Summer Series events for the 2013 season at the world famous Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club on Friday with the Pumpkin Ridge Shootout. A warm and sunny day with temperatures in the 70's welcomed the players to this former home of the LPGA Safeway Classic, as well as, the U.S. Women's Open. The rough was high and the greens oh so fast as players from each flight struggled to score. Another small field of players battled it out on this tough track but the Champions each won easily in the end.


Palmer Flight Champion
Joan Heeter
Palmer Flight (4.0 to 7.9 Handicaps)
In the Palmer Flight, Joan Heeter of Portland took the early lead with a front nine score of 44 and never looked back shooting an 87 on the day to win by 6-strokes over Brian Wimer of Lake Stevens, WA with his 93.

In 2nd place was Bob Vidourek of Canyon City who carded a 94 and in 3rd place was Fredrick Johnson of Beaverton who finished with a 99.
