Sisk wins NH Open on 3rd playoff hole

Geoffrey Sisk of Marshfield, Mass., won the third playoff hole with a birdie to defeat David Chung of Orlando, Fla., Thursday for the 79th New Hampshire Open Golf Championship title at the Owl’s Nest Golf Club in Campton.

Sisk collected a check for $5,000, Chung $3,000. Each golfer shot a 16-under-par 200 score through 54 holes before deciding the championship in extra holes.

Chung fired a seven-under par 65 Thursday and needed to birdie the 18th hole to tie Sisk and send the championship into extra holes.

For the tournament, Sisk (67-66-67-200) had 32 pars, 19 birdies and three bogeys. Chung (67-68-65-200) was equally impressive, carding 26 pars, 22 birdies and six bogeys.

Placing third overall was Michael Carbone (65-66-72-203) of Brewster, Mass., who entered the final round in second place.

Defending champion Jesse Larson of Mendon, Vt., finished in an 11th-place tie, eight shots behind Sisk and Chung. Chris Wellde of Ellicott City, Md., entered Thursday with a three-stroke lead after shooting a 10-under-par 62 in the first round. He shot even par in rounds two and three and ended in a sixth-place tie, six shots back.

Tied with Wellde and Jason Thresher of West Suffield, Conn., was Nick Antonelli of Atkinson Country Club, New Hampshire’s top finisher with a 10-under-par 206 score. Thirteen shots back and tied for 20th was Joe Toland of Lebanon. Three shots behind him was fellow Lebanon resident Patrick Pelletier. Tying fellow Granite Stater Toland’s 213 card was Michael Martel of New Ipswich, and one stroke back was Connor Greenleaf of Windham. In 43rd place overall was Nate Choukas of Hanover at 228.
