Coles third on Nationwide

Gavin Coles fired a three-under par 68 to finish in a tie for third place at the Miccosukee Championships in Miami, Florida. Coles finished at 10-under alongside Bryce Molder and Josh Broadway, two shots behind D.A. Points and Matt Bettencourt who need a playoff to decide the winner. Points birdied the first sudden death playoff hole to win the Nationwide Tour event at the Miccosukee Golf and Country Club. It was a strong performance by the Aussie contingent with Scott Gardiner finishing at eight-under in a tie for sixth place and Marc Leishman a further two strokes back in a tie for 11th. Andrew Bonhomme also put in a good showing to finish at four-under in a tie for 20th, while Steven Dartnall was another shot back in a tie for 30th. Aron Price and Won Joon Lee were not at their best, finishing the tournament at even-par in 45th place, and current No.2 on the money list Jarrod Lyle will be disappointed with his four days after he finished in a tie for 52nd.
