Feenstra comes close to playing in PGA Championships


Tim Feenstra, a former All-America golfer at Western Washington University, came within two strokes of qualifying for the Professional Golfers Association Championship on Aug. 8-11 at the Oak Hills Country Club in Rochester, N.Y.

That would have made Feenstra the first Viking to compete in one of the four major championships, the others being the Masters, the U.S. Open and the British Open.

The 30-year-old Feenstra tied for 34th at the National Club Professional Tournament held Monday through Thursday on the Crosswater Course at Sunriver, Ore. He shot a 3-over par 290 with rounds of 69, 72, 73 and 76.

Entering the final round, Feenstra was 21st. The top 20 earned berths in the PGA Championship.
