Q.Â Well, 2‑under entering the weekend.Â How are you feeling?
JEFF COSTON:Â I feel with my fingers.Â No, I'm just kidding.Â No, I'm excited and happy.Â And I played in this tournament regularly, and it's really nice of the PGA of America that they give us a chance, for club pros to play in this golf tournament.Â I played the TOUR and I had my golf academy up at Semiahmoo up in Blaine, Washington for 19 years now, so I haven't played full‑time in 19 years, but it's fun to get the opportunity to test yourself.
Q.Â How does it feel to be in contention heading into the weekend?
JEFF COSTON:Â I like that.Â I like that a lot.Â I'm not really worried about that.Â I'm just trying to play some golf.Â Just trying to play Jeff Coston golf.
What was fun for me too is the uniqueness of this is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week was the Washington Open, right?Â So I played in that Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.Â I flew out here on the 12, played practice rounds on its 14th, 15th.Â Flew home.Â Taught for the week.Â Played in the Washington Open, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.Â Flew in, got here Thursday morning, teed it up yesterday morning and, boom, here I am.
