Portland, August 28th. Peter’s Party is back in full swing! After a nine year hiatus, Peter Jacobsen’s popular charity tournament is up and running in the form of The Umpqua Bank Challenge. 81-year-old Arnold Palmer was Jasobsen’s partner as he had been during the previous 17 Fred Meyer Challenge events.
Steve Elkington and partner Scott McCarron finished the 36-hole total with 24-under to win the Umpqua Bank Challenge. Jacobsen and Palmer finished at 4 under par. It was the first time in over a year that Palmer had played 36 holes in just two days. This year’s summer tournament at the Portland Golf Club drew thousands and had a prize purse of $532,000.
Two local charities were the beneficiaries of the money raised by the event: The Children’s Hospital at
Legacy Emanuel and the “I Have a Dream Foundation.”
