Trailing at the beginning of the day, Bryan Hoops was two back of the leaders and Rick Bojalad three back, Bryan Hoops and Rick Bojalad both posted low numbers on Sunday to come from behind an tie at the top of the leaderboard with two-day scores of 117. Rick posted a seven under 54 while Bryan posted a six under 55. The playoff went just one hole as Bojalad birdied the first hole while Hoops scored a par.

Teeing off first on hole #10 Hoops’ tee shot with a fairway wood landed about 40 yards short of the green on the right side just off the fairway in light rough. Bojalad then chose to use driver and his ball landed just in front of the green, rolled across the front and settled some 10 feet off the green on the right side. Hoops’ second shot landed on the green and quickly stopped leaving him a 15 foot uphill putt. Bojalad then chipped to about 4 feet from the hole. Both players had uphill putts for birdies. Bryan was away and his putt just missed the hole, stopping less than a foot away. Rick then sank his putt for the birdie and the win.
