Long-time club member David Cook call on years of experience and nerves of steel to hold of newcomer Tyler White in a three-hole playoff on a Labor Day finish at the course.

Cook qualified Sunday with a solid 75, giving him a three-shot cushion over White heading into final round play on Monday. However, it was White who applied the pressure in final round action as he fired a smooth 73 compared to Cook's 76, thus forcing extra golf.

"Tyler played great," Cook said. "He played solid golf all day. He's a great kid and I had a lot fun playing today."

Cook opened the door for White late in the final round on the par 5, 16th hole when he sprayed a ball out of bounds and finished the hole with a double bogey.

"I was cruising along with the lead and I just didn't finish on my tee shot," Cook said. "I tried to guide the ball a little and just hung it out the right. Give Tyler credit, he did what he need to down the stretch to force the playoff." But ultimately, it was Cook who knew how to finish what he had started.

After pars from both golfers on the opening two playoff holes and solid drives on the par 4, third hole, Cook struck a short approach shot within eight feet to put the pressure on White. He had thinned a sound wedge that slid 20 feet past the hole.

White, feeling like he needed to drain the birdie putt, got a little aggressive and left some four feet for par putt coming back. As Cook nuzzled his birdie putt up by the hole, White was in a must-make situation and pushed the par opportunity to the left, leaving Cook with a tap-in for the victory.

"I had my chances," said the 20-year-old lefty White. "I'm disappointed, but I'm also proud of how I battled today. This was definitely a learning experience."

Finishing just three shots back was Roger Brooks, who followed an opening qualifying round of 80 up with a solid 74 for a two-day total of 154. Larry Fulkerson had a combined score of 157 and was followed by Alfred 'Boogie' Williams and his 161.

Marty Wright fired a 165 to complete action in the Championship Flight.

In First Flight play, Greg Legate overcame a two-shot deficit thanks to a final round of 77 to win. Legate's two-day total of 161 edged Mike Hancock who finished one shot back at 162. Third in the flight was Gary McConnell with rounds of 83-80 to finish with a 163.

Bruce Cosby finished with a 171 (89-82), Mark Wright 195 (97-98) and Larry Orcutt 195 (98-97). Mark Hudson cruised to victory in the Senior Flight with solid rounds of 80-77 to edge fellow senior Mike Hudson.

In women's Club Championship action, it seemed to be a possible changing-of-the- guard as Krystal Heady held off multiple-time country club champion Ann Hayes to win the first-ever Providence Municipal title.

Heady used back-to-back rounds of 80 to finish with a two-day total of 160 to edge Hayes. She had qualified with an 85 and finished strong on Monday with an 81. Diane Oakley had a two-day total of 170 while Melanie Legate finished with a 172.

She failed to capitalize on an impressive qualifying round of 82.

"Miss Ann is a great golfer. It's an honor to play with her," said Heady. "It was obvious she was battling some back pain, but she just kept plugging away. Her short game is phenomenal."

Heady, a relative newcomer to the game, relied on her length off the box and solid play around the green to secure the victory.

"I'm proud of how I played," Heady said. "It was a fun day."
