ORLANDO — It took 40 holes to crown the boys 15-19 age division champion and Hartland's Piercen Hunt had to be exceptional in a sudden-death playoff with Alexandre Liu to walk away with his second Future Collegians World Tour victory of the fall, winning the 36 hole event at Falcons Fire GC.
Hunt birdied the fourth of of the playoff to outlast France's Liu after the two golfers finished regulation at 6-under-par 138. Hunt overcame a bogey on his penultimate hole and birdied No. 18, his fifth birdie of the day, to force extra holes with Liu, who finished birdie-birdie and played his last six holes in 5-under.
Liu, who took a 2-shot lead over Hunt after an opening 68, played his first 12 holes in 3-over par and fell four shots behind Hunt, who birdied all four par-5s (Nos. 4, 7, 10 and 14) to get to 4-under. Hunt and Liu each parred the first three playoff holes before Hunt ended the playoff with a birdie on the fourth extra hole.
Hunt, the reigning WIAA Division 1 state champion, won the Purdue tournament in September.
Lake Geneva's Blake Wisdom, who was four shots off the pace after an opening 72, struggled to an 80 in the final round and finished 16th in the 32-golfer field.
