SCARSDALE, New York -- Brian Komline posted 6-over 146 over a long, 36-hole day to win the 78th playing of the William Rice Hochster Memorial Invitational.

Playing at the famed Westchester County course that sits adjacent to Winged Foot, Komline chased down 3-time winner Ken Bakst to grab the title by a single shot. Bakst struggled through the 15th and 16th to go from chased to chaser. The former U.S. Mid-Am Champ had one final chance with a birdie putt on the 18th but it was from long range and didn't drop.
