Prughs receive special awards at Hudson Cup

It was nearly a perfect weekend for the Prugh family of Spokane at the 63rd Hudson Cup golf matches last weekend in Lake Oswego, Ore. Steve Prugh, the longtime head professional at Manito Golf & Country Club, was presented the Bob McKendrick Award by the Pacific Northwest Section PGA as the outstanding senior professional in the competition. He had a win and two halved matches for 2 points as the senior pros defeated the senior amateurs 10 1/2-9 1/2 in the 20th edition of the Senior Hudson Cup.
