Keffer Wins Section Championship

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.”

Northern Wins Colorado Senior PGA Professional Championship

Colorado Springs Professional Fires 10-under 134

Mike Northern, PGA Life Member, followed up a stellar first round with an even better second round to win the 2016 Colorado Senior PGA Professional Championship on Tuesday in Lafayette, CO.  Northern, a four-time Dow Finsterwald Player of the Year fired back-to-back rounds of 67 to finish at 10-under-par 134.

 

“This was really good for me!” noted Northern following his victory.  “I haven’t won anything in a long time.”

 

Northern posted a bogey free round on Tuesday and made five birdies including a closing four-under-par 32.  “I saw the scores at the turn and knew somebody was going to post a decent score so I knew I had to go out and keep going,” Mike said.  “I thought to myself, why can’t that be me?”

 

Northern relied on his normally strong iron game over the two rounds but it was his wedge game that made a difference.  “My irons are usually the strength of my game and they were good this week but I really hit my wedges well this week.”

University of Colorado Assistant Coach Fires 10-Under 134 at Legacy Ridge GC

Pat Grady, an Apprentice Professional and the Assistant Coach of the University of Colorado Men’s Golf team won the 2016 National Car Rental Colorado Assistant Professional Championship at Legacy Ridge Golf Course.  Grady, a two-time Colorado Golf Association Player of the Year, posted back-to-back rounds of five-under-par 67 to earn his Colorado PGA victory.

 

“The key really was just playing really consistent golf,” noted Grady after his victory.   “I birdied a lot of the par-5’s and the drive-able par-4’s this week.  I really didn’t do anything special so it was a pretty boring victory.”
