The annual Antioch Master/Senior at Lone Tree Golf Course turned out to be a thriller.
Clare Langford sank a birdie putt on the first hole of a sudden death playoff (the 18th) to give he and partner Gary Vanier a win over the runner-up tandem of Ralph Costanzo and Ryan Sloane.
The Langford/Vanier duo and Costanzo/Sloane squad both finished regulation with identical scores of 135.
Finishing in a tie for third at 137, just two strokes out of the playoff, were the tandems of Terry Foreman/Jeff Hoffman and Jim Knoll/Jamie Looper.
The victory was Gary Vanier’s first since a win at the Stockton City Four-Ball held in March 2014.
