Recap: 36th Oregon Mid-Amateur Championship

By Oregon Golf Association

Congratulations to Tye Gabriel (+1) and Monica Vaughn Fisher (+6) for winning the 36th Oregon Mid-Amateur Championship at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club - Ghost Creek. Weather was a big factor in the championship as the course received over an inch of rain from Saturday into Sunday. While the conditions were rainy, the agronomy staff maintained the course's terrific shape, with little to no puddling on the fairways and greens.

This was Tye's first Mid-Am win since winning the Oregon Amateur in 2022. Monica's last OGA win was the Oregon Women's Stroke Play in 2020, which was the same year she was reinstated as an amateur. Fun fact: Monica now holds all of the OGA titles that she is eligible for having won the Junior Am, Amateur Championship, Public Links, Women's Stroke Play, and now the Mid-Amateur. Congrats Monica!

Gabriel opened with a blistering 66 (-5) in round one, powered by seven birdies and an eagle. As conditions toughened during round two, there were four players in contention with five holes to play. Gabriel remained steady throughout the back nine even with a bogey on the 17th hole, ultimately besting Zach Foushee and Charlie Stankiewicz by two strokes.

Vaughn Fisher's opening round of 74 (+3) had her tied with Jessica Mangrobang going into round two on Sunday. The former NCAA Individual National Champion was able to bounce back from an early triple bogey on the fourth hole, ultimately steadying the ship with birdies on holes 10 and 13. Vaughn Fisher ultimately pulled away to win by four strokes, carding her second 74 (+3) of the championship.

Thank you to our competitors, volunteers, and especially Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club for hosting the event.
