Coleman Invitational: O'Connell Prevails

JUNO BEACH, FL (April 29, 2006)--Eoghan O'Connell shot a final-round 68 to win the George L. Coleman Invitational at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.

The former Great Britain & Ireland Walker Cupper started the final round 6 shots behind Trip Kuehne of Dallas, himself a former Walker Cupper from the U.S. side. But Kuehne struggled to a 78, and O'Connell took advantage of the opening by firing the low round of the day to win by four shots at 3-under 213. Kuehne was the runner-up at 217, and Robert Gerwin finished third at 218.

O'Connell was an All-American at Wake Forest before playing the European Tour from 1990 to 1997. He has since regained his amateur status.

In the senior division, Mark Bemowski and Rick Woulfe each closed with a 76 for a 224 (+8) total, before Woulfe prevailed in a three-hole playoff to claim the title. John Baldwin finished third at 225, with Tim Miller fourth at 227.

ABOUT THE Coleman Invitational

One of the very best amateur events all year long played on the last great private course designed by Donald Ross. The course, not long by today's standards, lies hard by the Atlantic Ocean. Oceanic winds and very fast greens give this course teeth. Ben Hogan once said "If you can play Seminole, you can play any course in the world."
