McCoy, Lutz claim Coleman Invite titles
Saturday, April 30, 2011
Seminole member Mike McCoy closed with a final-round 70 on Saturday to win the mid-amateur division of the George L. Coleman Amateur Invitational at Seminole Country Club in Juno Beach, Fla.
McCoy, of West Des Moines, Iowa, finished four shots ahead of Tim Jackson, who closed in 75. McCoy, the medalist at the 2009 U.S. Mid-Amateur, finished at 2-under 214, the only player in the field to break par over 54 holes.
Chip Lutz, of Reading, Pa., defeated Rick Woulfe, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in a three-hole aggregate playoff to win the senior division. Lutz was the only player in either division to break 70 in the final round, closing in 68 to finish at 222.
Lutz was a semifinalist at last year’s U.S. Senior Amateur and he was the winner of the Florida Senior Azalea Amateur in March.
Bill Zylstra, Golfweek’s top-ranked senior player, tied for third after a final-round 75, while Paul Simson, winner of last year’s U.S., British and Canadian Senior Amateurs, finished tied for fifth at 225.
