It’s Ross & Smith Invitational week at PCC! Do you know who the event is named after ? Learn More ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ Alec Ross was a native of Dornoch in the Scottish Highlands where he learned the game in his home country, but like many British professional golfers of his era he spent many years working as a club professional in the United States. While employed by the Brae Burn Country Club, near Boston, he won the 1907 U.S. Open at the St. Martin's course at The Philadelphia Cricket Club. Ross's brother Donald is remembered as one of history's greatest and most celebrated golf course designers. Alex Smith a native of Carnoustie was also a member of a famous Scottish golfing family. Like many British professionals of his era Alex Smith spent much of his adult life working as a club professional in the United States. Alex won the U.S. Open in both 1906 and 1910, the latter contested at The Philadelphia Cricket Club's St. Martin's Course. His 1910 U.S. Open victory was achieved in a three-man playoff against Philadelphia's John McDermott and another of his own brothers, Macdonald Smith. Alex Smith owns one of the greatest U.S. Open records in history, having played in eighteen U.S. Opens in total and accumulated eleven top ten finishes.

We had a great day today at @pcc1854 for the Cancer Support Community of Greater Philadelphia. Today would have been our mom’s 61st birthday. It was a great way to honor her memory - spending time together and helping to support everyone affected by the disease that took her three years ago.
