Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club’s Jeff Coston won the 2016 Club Car WWC PGA Senior Chapter Championship on Tuesday, October 18, at Rainier Golf and Country Club in Des Moines, his third major win this year.
Following a busy week of travel, Coston played on the course without previewing.
“That was the first time in my whole career I’d ever done that. I’m usually a preparation guy,”
Coston got off to a slow start but birdied two of the last three holes in the qualifier, which put him in a playoff with Brian Davis, where he birdied the first hole.
“I did not hit the ball very well the first day but I had a great attitude. I faked it ‘til I made it,”
He shot a 73 on Monday and a 71 on Tuesday.
Coston’s other wins this year were at the Washington Open and the Washington Senior Open.
Next, Coston is going to the Senior PGA Professional Championship in Florida in November and the Hawaii State Open on Kona in December. He’ll also be teaching this winter at his Jeff Coston Golf Academy, which he started at Semiahmoo
Golf and Country Club in 1994.
