JOHNSTOWN, PA (June 12, 2005) -- The 52nd Champion of the Sunnehanna Amateur Tournament for Champions is Australian Michael Sim. Sim won the tournament with a birdie putt on the No. 1, the first hole of sudden death playoff after a four hole aggregate playoff with Nicholas Thompson (Coral Springs, FL) and fellow Australian Jamie Arnold ended in a tie. The three players had finished at 7 nder par.

The prestigious tournament was plagued by rains on the first three days but Sunday's final round was played straight-through without incident. Third round leader Kevin Kisner slid to 73 on Sunday, opening the door for players like Sim, Thompson, and Arnold, who fired Sunday rounds of 69, 67, and 68 respectively. Finishing one stroke out of a playoff was 2003 U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Nathan Smith of nearby Brookville, Pennsylvania.

The round of the day was recorded by Brian Harman of Georgia, whose 65 was still 2 strokes off the low round of the tournament, the course-record tieing 63 fired by champion Sim in the second round.
