Choices make habits; habits produce character; character builds a lifestyle.
“I haven’t missed a day of teaching in more than 20 years of running my golf academy…” Jeff Coston is featured in PGA Magazine, February 2015 issue, “Teaching Teachers.”
Jeff Coston has 3 tournaments remaining in 2014. The busy teacher/coach/mentor/tournament player is headed to Florida next week for the Senior Professional National Championship. (that’s a mouth full)
Jeff won this event in 2006. That must make him OLD! Last year Coston finished 3rd.
The week following Coston heads to Orlando for the finals of the Champions Tour Qualifier. Last year Jeff finished 9th and earned a conditional card on the Champions Tour.
Coston is keeping all his plates spinning teaching and playing through December as he defends his one shot victory over former U.S. Open Champion and friend Scott Simpson in the Senior Hawaii State Open.
Jeff said ” I’m going to enjoy each day, shot and experience. I look forward to the opportunity to play free, committed, react to the target and trust myself.”
Jeff shot 67 and won the Open qualifier by two shots at Canterwood in Gig Harbor. Coston will tee it up with the best seniors in the world at Oak Tree National in Edmond, Oaklahoma July 10-13. This is Costons 4th Senior U.S. Open and the 18th Major Championship of his career.
Coston wins the Hawaii Senior State Open edging Scott Simpson by one shot. 67-69-72 at Mauna Lani Resort on the big island of Hawaii.
Semiahmoo golf instructor Jeff Coston came from a shot back to force a playoff and then beat Redmond’s Tom Sovay on the second hole of a playoff to claim the Pacific Northwest Section Senior PGA Championship for the seventh time in eight years on Friday, Sept. 6, at the RMG Club at Oakbrook in Lakewood.
“I’ve won this thing seven times now,” said Coston, who reclaimed the top spot after missing in 2012. “I guess that must mean that I’m getting old. … I’m feeling like a young man, though. I’ve done 500 pushups so far today, and I’ve just got to beat the traffic home so I can do another 500.”
The pushups seemed to help, as Coston rallied from a stroke back entering the final round to tie Sovay by shooting a second-round 68, following his first-round 69.
“The weather was crazy and rainy today, but the course held water well,” Coston said. “I was told I was leading going into the last hole, and I birdied the last hole, but it turned out they had the scoreboard wrong. It ended up needing a birdie to tie.”
Both he and Sovay birdied the first playoff hole, but Sovay missed a short putt that would have tied Coston on the second.
Coston already had an exemption to the Southworth Senior PGA National Championship Oct. 10-13 at Creighton Farms and River Creek Club in Virginia. Shortly before that tournament, he’ll play in the PGA section championship in Richland.
