BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (June 3, 2012) -- Patrick Christovich, New Orleans, LA, opened the Birmingham National Invitational with a 65 and continued to lead until the last putt dropped, taking the title by six shots with a three day total of 12-under-par, 65-70-69--204.

"The 65 was a great way to start the event, even with a double bogey on the 16th hole," said Christovich after the round. "It is the second time I have shot 6-under to start an event, the other was at the Louisiana Mid-Amateur 2 years ago."

Brett Boner, Charlotte, N.C. finished alone in second place, posting rounds of 73-68-69- -210 and Tim Jackson, Germantown, TN was solo third with rounds of 71-72-69--212.

"The National Invitational Tournament at Birmingham is an event that I have been looking forward to playing in for years," added Christovich. "I am honored to have my name listed on that trophy along side of some fantastic past Amateur champions."
