36 holes were not enough to determine the NOGA Tour Champion at Firestone Country Club on Monday afternoon. Barrington Golf Club’s Ian Hardesty and Quail Hollow’s Trevor Cohen needed two extra holes to figure out who was taking home the trophy.

Hardesty and Cohen finished their first 36 holes at the Fazio and South courses at 3-over par. On the second playoff hole, Hardesty put his approach shot to three feet and made the birdie putt to win the tournament after Cohen made par.

Aaron Crewse (NOHIO.GOLF Club) and Chris Horne (Elyria Country Club) finished tied for third place at 6-over par.

In the Senior Division, Robert Schustrich won wire to wire. Schustrich shot 68-75 to win by four strokes.

Allen Freeman (N.OHIO Golf Club) finished in second place (+7) and Tom Skidmore (Weymouth and Fox Meadow CC) finished in third place (+8).

Not only was the Tour Championship on the line, but so was the NOGA Player of the Year in both divisions.

Cohen entered the Tour Championship in fifth place and with points leader Brian Smith (Oberlin Golf Club) finishing tied for eighth place, Cohen would need a win at Firestone to earn Player of the Year honors. But with Cohen finishing second, Smith locked up his ninth Player of the Year title.
