"The fiercest competitor I ever faced," was how PNGA Hall of Fame member Don Krieger, of Portland, summed up what it was like facing Dick Price in a match. You could say when it came to golf, the long-time U.S. postal worker always delivered. He is the only player in Northwest golf history to have won both the Oregon and Washington State Men's Amateur championships twice. His remarkable 13 appearances on Hudson Cup Amateur teams is testament to his standing as one of the finest players of his era.
Dick's often repeated philosophy in life was "the nicest thing you can say about a man is that he is a gentleman." Although he passed away last year, the PNGA will posthumously honor this gentleman and champion with induction into its Hall of Fame.
