By Jack Persons

CHANTILLY, France (May 26, 2014) — Maximilian Roehrig of Germany defeated Kenny Subregis of France on the first playoff hole to claim the French Amateur Championship.

Both players shot identical scores to tie after 72 holes, carding 71-68-68-70 for a total of seven-under 277. The championship came down to the final hole, where Roehrig sunk a clutch birdie to shoot a one-under 70. Subregis had a birdie putt to win the tournament, but could not seal the victory, and the two headed to the first extra hole.

Each player hit the green, and Roehrig went first, draining his birdie to put the pressure on his opponent. Subregis’ putt to extend the playoff slid by, giving the title to Roehrig.

Subregis made only one bogey in his final round, on the first hole, but could not get past Roehrig, who played his last 13 holes in three-under.

Robin Sciot-Siegrist of France posted the low round of the day with a 68. After starting slow the first two rounds, he fired a 137 in the final two to jump all the way to sixth.

Leonard Bem of France and Benedict Gebhardt of Germany tied for third at three-under 281. Gebhardt plays at Wingate University in North Carolina. Antoine Rozner of the University of Missouri — Kansas City finished at one-under 283 to tie for sixth.
