VIDEO: Isaiah Kanno's playoff birdie seals Hawaii State Amateur
- HSGA video screen shot
Isaiah Kanno of Hilo rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to win the Hawaii State Amateur at Leilehua Golf Course.
Kanno was 10 shots behind after a first-round 79, but clawed his way back with three under-par rounds, finishing at 2-under 286. He might have won in regulation, but bogeyed the final hole and watched as both Andy Okita of Mililani and Kolbe Irei of Honolulu had chances to win with a final-hole birdie but could only manage par.
The three went to a playoff, where the 17-year-old Kanno ended it with a clutch walk-off putt. Watch below:
