PGA Professional Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo G&CC and amateur Kyle Cornett of Inglewood GC won the Pacific Golf & Turf PNW Pro-Am Championship. They posted rounds of 61-65-126, a fantastic -17-under par in the four-ball team competition at Tumble Creek Club and Rope Rider courses at Suncadia Resort.
“Kyle is a tremendous partner, no question! We have worked on his game for over a year. He has made amazing strides and is ready for the next chapter on any level!” Coston stated. “I’m not finished yet myself.”
Semiahmoo’s Jeff Coston finished tie for 3rd and 1 shot out of a playoff last week at the Pacific Northwest Section Championship at Meadow Springs in Richland, WA. He is one of seven players in the field to qualify for the 2019 PGA Professional Championship to be held at Belfair in Bluffton, SC. Coston shot rounds of 71-69-71. He has won this event 7 times.
“I’m passionate about teaching, playing and staying young from the neck down,” Coston told reporters with a smile
Jeff Coston on the importance of teaching your students how to win:
It has been said that I’ve played on every tour except the LPGA Tour, including the PGA Tour, Web.com Tour, and the PGA Tour Champions. I’m a grandfather now, and I’m still playing tournament golf. So, I’m sometimes asked why I’ve been more successful as a player in my latter days than I was on the PGA Tour in the mid-80s. The answer is that I have learned from past failures and have a far better mental game than ever before. I have learned how to win. And this is something that must be taught to our golf students every day.
Semiahmoo’s Jeff Coston successfully defended his Oregon Senior Open Title by shooting 68-67-66, edging former Seattle Mariners pitcher (and friend) Erik Hansen. It is Coston’s 6th Oregon Senior Open win!
