PGA Professional Championship
The PGA Professional’s Showcase
The PGA Professional Championship began in 1968 to provide additional playing opportunities for PGA Professionals.

Today, the field features 312 players.
The list of Champions includes: Sam Snead, Bob Rosburg, Ed Dougherty, Bruce Fleisher, Larry Gilbert, Rex Baxter Jr., Don Massengale, Laurie Hammer, Larry Webb, Bob Boyd, Brett Upper, Bruce Zabriski and Mike Small.
