“I want to thank Mike Bender, Mike Adams, Mike Bennett and Andy Plummer for their influence, inspiration and training. I have done 136 golf schools with Bender and more than 25 golf schools with Adams, Bennett and Plummer each,” Coston said of his achievement.
Jeff is a longtime friend teaching golf to my father, brother, and I for some 20+ years. Over the last two seasons, when I picked golf back up after spending a number of years abroad, he has been my dedicated swing coach.
Jeff’s wisdom, passion and energy for the game are not only motivational but inspiring and uplifting to be around. His achievements and success with tournament golf have provided an invaluable source of insight into the psyche of tournament play and the way a player thinks their way around a golf course.
Jeff’s dedication and consistent support of my game was a major contributing factor to qualifying for and playing in the 119th US Women’s Amateur at Old Waverly Golf Club, MS and finishing T3 at the Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur this past summer.
He’s more than just a swing coach, he knows and understands intimately the physical, mental and emotional elements of the game – his experience and track record speaks for itself.
Just wanted to shoot you a note and say Thank You again. Things are definitely coming along, and the last two rounds I’ve played I made 8 birdies and 7 birdies each. I feel better and more in control of my ball than I have in a while. The hope is turning into confidence again and I couldn’t be looking forward to this upcoming season more.
Jeff played in the 2018 Rosauers Open Invitational in Spokane, Washington where he finished tied for second with rounds of 66-71-66. Jeff won this event three times and was chasing win number four. “It’s fun to still be in the mix with young Pro’s and college players! I’m working hard to stay young from the neck down.” Coston said smiling.

Jeff’s next tournament is the Oregon Senior Open in Pendleton, Oregon. He won last year and is looking to defend his title this year. After that, Jeff will be back at Semiahmoo for the summer where he has had his golf academy for 24 years.
Jeff Coston has been named 2017 Pacific Northwest PGA Teacher of the Year. This award recognizes the PGA Professional who is an outstanding teacher among the ranks of PGA membership.
“I would like to thank Semiahmoo members, staff, Brett Eaton and most of all my students/friends. I am also forever grateful for the training, influence, insight and accountability of coaches Mike Bender, Mike Adams, Mike Bennett and Andy Plummer. They are going to make a teacher out of me yet. Honestly, coaching, teaching and mentoring is not what I do, it is who I am.”
