ROCKVILLE, Md. — John Howson successfully defended his title on Wednesday at the Maryland Senior Amateur, but this time around, he needed a sudden-death playoff to make it official.

Last year's winner, a native of England originally, needed one extra hole against Lee Flemister to capture back-to-back wins. He made par hole No. 1, while Flemister made bogey.

Howson was out in front by a stroke after the first round, where he posted a bogey-free, 3-under par 69 and sat a shot ahead of Larry Storck. Flemister's 2-under par round of 70 in the second round deadlocked him with Howson through 36 holes after Howson bogeyed the last hole to shoot 73.

Storck settled for third place after falling back with 75 on Wednesday.
