It was a wild finish, but after three playoff holes North Florida golfer Vince Covello was atop the leaderboard at this weekend’s Chitimacha Louisiana Open. The 36-year old finished 19-under par and earned $99,000 for his efforts. Local golf fans are likely to see the Ponte Vedra native in person, perhaps at next year’s TPC, as Covello now sits at fourth place in the Tour’s overall standings. The top 25 finishers on the Tour earn PGA Tour cards for the following season.

Big ups, Vince!
