Geoff Keffer knew he had his work cut out for himself coming into the final round of the 2016 Colorado PGA Professional Championship at Cherry Creek Country Club on Wednesday. Keffer was two-shots behind Caine Fitzgerald, the current leader of the Dow Finsterwald Player of the Year race who just happened to have won the 2012 Colorado PGA Professional Championship; the last time it was held at Cherry Creek Country Club.
Keffer did his work during the final round by firing a tournament best five-under-par 67 to earn a comeback victory and his first ever title in the Colorado PGA Professional Championship.
“This is our biggest tournament and was the only one missing from my playing resume in the section,” noted Keffer. “To be able to add my name to the trophy and be in the same club as all those great champions and people means everything.”
