Two Tapemark Charity Pro-Am regulars battled it out today in a two hole sudden-death playoff on the 18th and 1st holes at the Wilderness at Fortune Bay in Tower. Columbia professional Jeff Sorenson beat Edinburgh USA professional Don Berry by knocking his approach shot on the 649 yard, par five first hole to a few inches.

Berry held a one shot lead heading into the last two holes, but Sorenson birdied the par three seventeenth hole after hitting his tee shot to about four feet. He almost won the tournament in regulation after hitting the flag on eighteen from a perfectly executed green-side bunker shot. Both players made par fours on the first playoff hole.

A pair of Troy Burne professionals (and Tapemark regulars), Dave Tentis and Brent Snyder, tied for third after shooting matching totals of 68-72-140 (-4). Here are the top 10 finishers (full leaderboard):
