Gary Christian wins Mylan Classic
England’s Gary Christian won the Nationwide Tour’s Mylan Classic on Sunday, shooting a 4-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over John Mallinger at the Southpointe course.

40-year-old Christian from Carshalton, London and former Auburn player, earned $108,000 to jump from 27th to fourth on the money list with $230,040.

The top 25 will earn 2012 PGA Tour cards.

''I'm biting my lip a little bit and I might be struggling. I'm not usually at a loss for words, but this might be one of those rare occasions,'' Christian said. ''It's like a dream come true.''

Finishing at 17-under 268, he edged Malinger who closed with 68. Bowden (66) and Scott Brown (67) tied for third at 15 under.

''I think it was meant to be this week,'' said Christian, also the winner of the tour's 2009 Northeast Pennsylvania Classic. ''Walking down the fairway today I was thinking it's just my time.''

There was also drama away from the top of the leaderboard. India's Rahil Gangjee became the third player in Nationwide Tour history to make a hole-in-one on a par 4.

''I was just trying to get it on the green that was it. When it's a driveable hole, you think you can get it close and maybe make eagle, but a hole-in-one, nobody thinks about that,'' Gangjee said.
