With an 86 in the green towel round, Koehnen finished with a career high 2nd place in the 2017 GTC. Contributing to his performance is a slice that is all but gone off the tee. The straight ball flight has unleashed distance that places him amongst the longest hitters in the field. Keeping that distance off the tee while finding a way to take something off of his 165-yd pitching wedge could unlock an entirely new level as Chad’s game continues to improve in 2018 and beyond.
A typically relaxed competitor, Koehnen has taken his work on the course a bit more seriously, logging in the neighborhood of 20 rounds in 2017, over half of which were in the 80’s. Was Chad’s 2017 2nd place finish an anomaly, or a sign of lower scores to come? The future is bright for this GTC competitor, and Koehnen could be a star in the making.
