Madey, Elmes and Humphreys to represent PNGA at 2018 Morse Cup competition

Cole Madey of West Linn, Ore., Riley Elmes of Lake Oswego, Ore. and Brian Humphreys of Vancouver, Wash. have been selected to represent the Pacific Northwest Golf Association at this year’s Morse Cup team competition, which will take place simultaneously with the 52nd Pacific Coast Amateur Championship held at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, Calif.

L to R: Cole Madey, Riley Elmes and Brian Humphreys.

The 2018 Pacific Coast Amateur will be held July 24-27, with the Morse Cup competition taking place during the first two days of the 72-hole competition. Two of the top three scores from each team in rounds one and two will count for the Morse Cup portion of the event.

Madey will be a senior on the UCLA men’s golf team. In 2017, he won the Oregon Amateur after also being the qualifying medalist in that championship. He made it to the Round of 32 in the 2017 U.S. Amateur, and was named the 2017 PNGA Men’s Player of the Year. Earlier this month he won the prestigious Sahalee Players Championship.

Elmes just completed his junior year playing on the men’s golf team at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, where he recorded seven top-5 finishes, including a win at the 2017 Wyoming Southern Dunes Invitational and a runner-up finish at the Oregon Duck Invitational. He became just the seventh player in program history to earn an at-large invitation to compete in the NCAA Regionals. Elmes was named to the PING All-West Region Team.

Humphreys will be a junior at Boise State University, where he finished in the top five in the past two Mountain West Championships, earning medalist honors in 2017 as a freshman. He was named the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year in 2017. Humphreys has twice finished runner-up in the Oregon Amateur.

About the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship

The Pacific Coast Amateur Championship is one of the oldest and most prestigious amateur golf championships in North America. The first tournament was held on the links of San Francisco Golf Club at The Presidio in 1901. After being played until 1911, The Pacific Coast Amateur then ceased to exist, only to be reconstituted at Seattle Golf Club in 1967. Today, 15 member Pacific Rim golf associations comprise the Pacific Coast Golf Association.

Held on an annual basis since 1967, the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship boasts a rich history of showcasing some of the most talented golfers in the United States and Canada.

Past champions of the Pacific Coast Amateur who have gone on to successful professional careers include PGA Tour winners Billy Mayfair (1987, 1988), Jason Gore (1997) and Ben Crane (1998) as well as Tour winners and brothers Michael Putnam (2004) and Andrew Putnam (2010).
