JUNO BEACH, Fla. (April 25, 2014) -- Patrick Christovich fired a second-round 69 and extended his lead at the 2014 George L. Coleman Invitational at Seminole Golf Club.

Christovich held the lead following an even-par 72 in Thursday's first round and camep back to go 3-under on Friday. He now leads by three shots over four players at even par 144.

Reigning U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Mike McCoy and the man he beat in the final match, Billy Williamson, are tied for second along with Kris Mikkelsen and R.J. Nakashian. McCoy, of course, won the Coleman last year.

Continuing his solid play, Christovich could run away with the title. A longtime force in national mid-amateur events, the New Orleans resident recently finished tied for third at the Azalea. Last year, he was 12th at the Coleman, tied for sixth at the Crane Cup and Birmingham National Invitational.

Kevin Marsh, Scott Harvey and Skip Berkmeyer are all tied for seventh place, sitting just five shots back entering the final round.

Other notable players near the top half of the leaderboard include: Gene Elliott (76-72, T14), John Sawin (73-75, T14), Nick Gilliam (76-74, T22), Trip Kuehne (83-69, 25th).

The George L. Coleman Invitational is one of the year's top events. Played at the Donald Ross-designed Seminole Golf Club, the Coleman features a loaded field featuring many of the world's top mid-amateurs and seniors.

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.'

The tournament is a 54-hole stroke play invitational that draws an elite field of mid- amateurs and seniors.
