Christovich Wins Coleman

JUNO BEACH, FLORIDA | All that second-round leader Patrick Christovich would have to do to win the George L. Coleman Invitational was to beat a deep and talented field on a treacherous golf course while nursing an irritated stomach. The amiable New Orleans resident proved up to the task, handily claiming his first Coleman title at Seminole Golf Club. Christovich shot 3-under-par 213 to win the prestigious tournament by three shots ahead of Kevin Marsh.
Christovich opened with an even-par 72, and took the second-round lead after posting a 69. He was steady in the final round, shooting another 72 to finish as the only under-par player in the mid-am field.
Christovich, a reinstated amateur who did not play college golf, is off to a great 2014 start after what he characterized as a disappointing 2013. He teamed with fellow Louisianian Tommy Brennan to win the National Senior-Junior in January, and he contended at the Azalea Invitational earlier this spring, recording a T3 finish. Christovich is the four-time defending Louisiana Mid-Amateur champion; he will attempt to make it five in a row in August.
