Coston’s Student, Burly Hildreth Wins Bellingham Junior Open


Burly Hildreth wins the Bellingham Junior Open with his strongest finish yet. Burly’s three birdies today helped him secure his second win of the season by a whopping 11 strokes. With his win today, Burly qualifies for the year-end Rocky Mountain Tournament of Champions later this December. Congratulations Burly!

Coston interviews his student about the victory:

Q 1) Are you a better golfer now than when you won your first tournament and why?

Burly:  Yes. I have gotten way more accurate with my approach shots. I have also gotten more precise with my wedges after going to Camp Coston this summer. Jeff Coston and Mike Bender taught me how to perfect my short game.

Q 2) what are the strengths of your game?

Burly: Without a doubt, my drives, wedges and chipping rock.

3) Do you practice more effectively and how?

Burly: Jeff Coston showed me how to practice with a purpose by using routines, contests and drills – especially putting. Getting a shag bag has also helped me immensely.
