THE WOODLANDS, Texas (May 10, 2012) – Coming from two strokes off the pace after Round 2, Kevin Marsh of Henderson, Nev. fired a final-round 70 to finish at the top of the leader board at 2-under par 214 (70-74-70).  

Standing on the No. 17 tee, Marsh was 2 strokes behind and figured he would need a birdie-birdie finish for a chance to win. A driver-driver combo set up birdie on the par-5 17th and then a 200-yard cut 5-iron second shot on No. 18 to a dangerous right pin left Marsh a 6-footer, which he made to post a final round 70.

When Coby Harwell failed to make par from the short-side of the 18th green, Marsh would have his third Woodlands title in four years.

“I feel extremely lucky,” said Marsh. “To win this event 3 times and especially today to win like this ... I just can’t think of a better experience in golf.”

Marsh edged out second round co-leader Brady Exber of Las Vegas, and Colby Harwell of Lorena, Texas, who both finished at 215.

Robert Funk of Canyon Lakes, Calif. finished two off the pace at 216, capturing fourth place with rounds of 70-76- 70.  Second-round co-leader Joe Sanders of La Quinta, Calif., struggled with a final-round 76 to finish in a tie for fifth at 218 (69-73-76) with Edward Sanchez of The Woodlands, Texas at 218 (71-75-72.)

Mark Knecht of Paducah, Kent., who contended in last year's event with a third-place finish, was tied for 16th.

This win marks Marsh’s third time in the winner’s circle at the Carlton Woods Invitational as he won in 2009 and 2010.
