Seattle Times article by Scott Hansen
I’m getting them started young! We still make it fun. We go to Semiahmoo and hit a few shots, ride the cart, swim, throw rocks in the ponds and eat French fries. (No fries for me!) My family is my greatest accomplishment! Sometimes I need to remind myself what are truly the greatest treasures in life!
I just arrived back home from the Rousauers Spokane Open at 1 this morning. I chose playing Spokane over qualifying for British Senior Open because my wife, Diane, could go with me to Spokane and not to the UK. I’ve missed her in my travels this year. We have gone to Spokane for many years and always have fun! I chose fun. I shot 67-65-66 and finished 3rd. So I beat all but two of the young bucks. But I still consider myself young!
I teach this week and leave for Minneapolis Sunday for the 3M Classic; then to Calgary for the Shaw event; home for a golf school and our Champions Tour Pro-Am; than the Boeing Classic in Seattle.
I’d sure like to take more of those 65, 66 and 67’s on the road these next several tournaments!
I hope many of you join us for The Champions Tour Pro-Am, August 16-17. What a rare opportunity for everyone! Rocco Mediate, Mark Calcavecchia, Olin Brown, David Frost And many more!
Fun stuff here at Semiahmoo! Just like Disney World with no lines!

Jeff Coston is “Almost Famous” in this ‘Cascade Golfer’ article written by Tony Dear. Published June 20, 2011: http://cascadegolfer.com/almost-famous/
3 am east coast time. Flying to Seattle from Senior Players Championship, in Belmont. Then I drive up to Semiahmoo after playing today. Long day! Oh yes, my plane was delayed 3 hours out of Boston. Played with Kenny Perry today. He flies private. Guess I need to score lower. Kenny is one of the nicest guys on any tour. A super player and longtime friend from Franklin, Kentucky. When you drive into Kentucky, that’s what you see; home of Kenny Perry. Thirty years on tour and 40 million dollars later he deserves a sign. Great guy and he bombs it!
I got in this week after being second alternate. I took Tom Kite’s spot five minutes before the 11:20 tee time. Tom is tough, he almost played despite a torn ligiment in his right knee.
I was paired the first two rounds with Hale Irwin and Sandy Lyle. Two Hall of Fame members. Hale Irwin has won 45 times on the Champions Tour. That’s Crazy! No one will ever match that. He is 70 years old and cam flat play. They both treated me amazing.
This week I shot 72-72-66-74. I think around 34th. More 66’s are welcome.
Brad Faxon and Corey Pavin are on this flight . They are doing television for the U.S. Open this week at Chambers Bay. Two more good guys. Played a practice round with Pavin and Tom Lehman this week. Brad and I talk about the golf swing on a regular basis. Smart fellows.
U.S. Open reminds me of Father’s Day. I’ll look forward to Father’s Day. My family is my greatest accomplishment!! More rounds in the 60’s wouldn’t come close. They would be nice though.
Coston shot 69-68-67 to win by three shots. The tournament was hosted by 7 Cedars Casino in Sequim, Washington.
“Winning is always fun!” “I felt like I was putting like Steph Curry shoots 3’s!”
I’m back on the Champions Tour next week in Iowa then to Boston the following week. I’m teaching for a few days between tournaments, then golf schools with Mike Bender in June and July. A full life, but it keeps me young.
“I’ve got to be young to win that tournament 8 times.”
“Stay young and enjoy each day. No regrets!”
