BERKHAMSTED, England (April 8, 2017) -- It took extra holes but with the light dwindling Charlie Thornton was the last man standing at The Berkhamsted Trophy. Thornton fired a final round 4-under 67 to post 7-under and then he was able to outlast Ben Huchinson on the first extra hole.

Thornton did well to rebound after a late stumble. Heading to the 17th hole Thornton was 5-under for the round and 8-under overall but a bogey dropped him back a stroke and into the playoff.

Playing at Berkhamsted Golf Club, Thornton began his week with rounds of 71-69-70. The 1-under 70 was posted Saturday during the 36-hole final day.

John Kemp and Jack Gaunt were tied for third at 3-under while Callum Farr placed fifth at 2-under.
