Final Results 2010 George L. Coleman Invitational at Seminole Golf Club

The final round of the Coleman was greeted with winds that gusted to over 30mph making scoring conditions very tough. I’ll waste little time on my sad story and quest to finish in the top 10 was severely hammered by the #1 hole. Now keep in mind this is a straight down wind hole that is about 365 yards long with little trouble off the tee. So after a perfect drive 10 paces from the front of the green I managed to hit my chip shot slightly right of the pin, which was my first mistake as I watched my ball roll off the right side of the green into a green side bunker. I then blasted out to about 5 feet for my par putt which I stroked 4 feet past and missed for a quick and very ugly double bogey 6. This is the reason why the best Mid Amateurs and Senior Amateurs shot over par for 54 holes for the winning score.

Congratulations go out to Kris Mikkelsen who defeated Dennis Kavelman and R.J. Nakashian in a three hole playoff. On the senior side Pat Tallent had the low round of the day with a 74 to outlast Buddy Marucci by two shots.

This is an amazing amateur with rich history, and incredible late hole drama to the finish. We the participants are quite fortunate to be invited to one of the best tests in amateur golf. I again hope to be invited back next year so I can try to limit the number of mistakes that I annually make on this tough test of golf. I will be thinking about the many shots that got away….but seems I always return the next year to make similar mistakes…I guess it’s why I love the game so much!!
