John Riegger holed a 20-foot birdie putt on the final hole last year to win the Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.
Riegger, playing in only his fifth Champions Tour event, held off hometown favorite Fred Couples and John Cook. Riegger’s final round 4-under 68 gave him a 15-under 201 total and 2-stroke victory.
Riegger called it the best win of his career and credited it to improved play as he got closer to the Champions Tour.
TPC Snoqualmie Ridge is the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in the Pacific Northwest. The par-72 course plays to 7,264 yards.
