Both would fire 1-over rounds on Sunday to find themselves in a playoff.

The playoff started at the 9th Hole at Lockhaven, after both players found the fairway from the tee, Hanneken would have a 12-foot birdie putt to put away the title. However, a 3-putt from that distance would extend the playoff. On to the 10th Hole, where Hanneken again put his approach shot tight and would two putt for the victory.
