Starting the final round one shot off the pace, Patrick Christovich shot a 68 to win his fourth straight title at the Louisiana Mid- Amateur Championship.

Christovich, who held consideration for one of the two mid-amateur positions on the 2013 U.S. Walker Cup squad, only boosted his chances of remaining in the conversation with the impressive victory.

At The Bluffs Golf Resort in St. Francis, Louis., Christovich finished at 3-under and one shot up on Colin Richwine and Daniel Burger.

After taking the lead early in the final round, Christovich fell victim to a bogey on the par-4 11th. He showed the resolve that has made him into one of the country's top mid- amateurs, though, recording birdies on the next two holes to put it out of reach.

Earlier this year, Christovich tied for sixth at the Birmingham National Invitational after placing second at the 2012 Coleman Invitational.

ARIZONA AMATEUR: 57-SEED COLEGROVE PREVAILS

Colegrove prevailed in 19 holes, Saturday, winning in the same fashion in the semifinals over Austin Quick.

Former St. John's University golfer Pat Wilson captured his first Metropolitan Golf Association title in impressive fashion, defeating Trevor Randolph, 8-and-7, in the championship match at The Stanwich Club in Greenwich, Conn.

Wilson raced out to the early lead, winning seven of the first nine holes, and never looked back.

NORTH CAROLINA MATCH PLAY: JENKINS REMAINS IN WINNER'S CIRCLE

Carter Jenkins added to his impressive summer by winning the North Carolina Amateur Match Play at Carolina Country Club. Jenkins, who won last month's Carolinas Amateur Championship at The Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, knocked off Alex Nianouris, 6-and-5 in Sunday's final.

The rising freshman at UNC Greensboro needed just 90 minutes to dispatch Nianouris in the championship match.

MET (ST. LOUIS) AMATEUR: WELDON WINS SECOND STRAIGHT

Kyle Weldon became just the second player in Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association history to successfully defend his title at the Amateur Championship.

Weldon shot a final-round 70 to hold off a surge from Phil Caravia, winning by two shots.

WASHINGTON METRO AMATEUR: HUGE BEATS DELMAR IN 34 HOLES
