Raffle Winner Gets to Play Golf with Nathan Smith


BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – The Brookville Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) is raffling off a golf trip with area golf great Nathan Smith.

Smith, a Brookville native, who won the PIAA Golf Championship in 1994 and has won four U.S. Mid-Amateur championships, which resulted in four invitations to the Masters.

Smith has played with some of the game’s biggest names, including Arnold Palmer.

The raffle winner and two friends will play a round of golf with Nathan Smith at Pittsburgh’s Wildwood Golf Course.

Smith is the first Western Pennsylvania player to appear in two Walker Cups – the amateur version of the Ryder Cup – since William C. Fownes, son of the Oakmont founder, in the early 1920s.

Only 16 players in history have won more United States Golf Association titles than Smith (4), a list headed by Tiger Woods (9) and Bobby Jones (9).

Smith was the first player from Western Pennsylvania to win the Sunnehanna Amateur in Johnstown, a prestigious and nationally acclaimed tournament that is more than 60 years old.

Smith was inducted into the Western Pennsylvania Golf Hall of Fame Class of 2015.
