They were slowed down after a day by the amateur golfers at the 60th
Hudson Cup, but at crunch time, the best club professionals in the
Northwest would not be stopped.

Led by Lakewood’s Chris Griffin (assistant pro at Tacoma Country and
Golf Club) and Sumner’s Brian Thornton (pro at Meridian Valley), the
pros won six of the 10 singles’ matches Friday, and kept the trophy in
its grasp for a 28th consecutive year.

Griffin, the Lakes High product, arguably had the toughest matchup
for a pro, and took down Clarkston’s Joel Dahmen, 1-up, at The Members
Course at Aldarra in Fall City.

Thornton dispatched of Jim Dunlap, 5-and-3.

Other winners among professionals included Adrian Burtner, Ryan
Gibbons, Ryan Malby (named event’s best performer) and Scott Erdmann.

Adrian Burtner 3 & 2 1 Eric Fiskum 0
Chris Griffin 1 up 1 Joel Dahmen 0
