KEENE — Floridian Michael Kartrude outlasted two players on the first playoff hole to capture the New Hampshire Open championship Saturday at Bretwood Golf Course.

Kartrude, of West Palm Beach, Fla., finished the 54-hole championship at 10-under par along with Paul Pastore of Stamford, Conn., and Jared Mactus of Woodcliff Lake, N.J.

Kartrude entered the final round two shots back of the leader, Pastore. He made the turn at 2-under and closed with three straight birdies to post a 4-under 68 for the day, 10-under 206 for the tournament.

Pastore entered the final round with a one-shot lead and had a chance to win on the 18th hole, but he missed his birdie putt, fashioning the three-way tie.

The first playoff hole was Bretwood’s 18 hole, with the tees moved up to drivable distance for these talented professionals.

Kartrude and Mactus elected to drive the green on the playoff hole, the 18th, a short par-4. The decision paid off as Kartrude as he rolled in his birdie putt to win.

Bob Kearney of The Shattuck earned low amateur honors. Kearney came out of the gates flying with a 68 in the opening round of the championship at Bretwood. Kearney carded 74 in the second round at Keene Country Club and outlasted fellow Shattuck member Jake Hollander, the only other amateur to make the cut. Kearney finished with a 7-over 223. The top New Hampshire finisher was Nick Pandelena of Atkinson, who tied for 18th place with a 4-under 212.
