Christian has all but locked up a 2012 Tour Card after winning this weeks Nationwide Tour event, the Mylan Classic at Southpointe Golf Club. The win moved Christian to number 4 on the Nationwide money list with the Top 25 advancing to the PGA Tour at the end of the season.

“Deep down, you know you got a shot at doing it. You keep trying to knock that door down.” Christian said after his win. “I think it was meant to be this week,” Christian said. “I kept saying to myself as I walked down the fairway, it’s my time. The chip-in on 14. My last drive [on 18] stopped 6 inches from going in the water. It was my time.”
Christian played a Cleveland Launcher DST Ultralite driver (8.5°), a HiBORE XLS™ fairway wood (13°), a Cleveland CG1™ Tour iron (5), Cleveland CG TOUR™ irons (6-9), Cleveland CG16 wedges (48°, 54°, 60°), and a Srixon Z-STAR™ XV ball.
