Parry tops Hadwin in sudden death playoff

Bryn Parry let a big lead get away, then survived four playoff holes to beat Abbotsford's Adam Hadwin at the Chilliwack Men's Open.

North Vancouver’s Bryn Parry withstood a late charge from Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin to take top spot at the Chilliwack Men’s Open, held last weekend at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club.

Parry and Hadwin required four playoff holes to determine a winner.

Hadwin started Sunday’s second round six shots off the pace after Parry set a new course record Saturday with an eight-under-par 63.

But Hadwin closed the gap in rapid fashion as the leader cooled off.

Parry left the door open, shooting a tepid one-over-72 that included bogies on the first, 10th, 14th and 17 holes.

Hadwin completed the epic comeback on the 18th hole, getting the last of his seven birdies to force the playoff.

But Parry collected himself, and matched Hadwin stroke for stroke through three holes.

When he beat Hadwin on the fourth playoff hole, with a par to Hadwin’s bogy, he secured his fifth career title at the Chilliwack Men’s Open.

“It was extra special to win the event in front of my wife and two boys,” he said afterwards.

Seann Harlingten was third in the professional division, two shots off the pace.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp tied Oliver Tubb for fourth, each shooting four-under-par 138s.

On the amateur side, Chilliwack’s Dan Mitchell fired a four-overpar 146 to edge Mark Heinrich and Greg Bismeyer by three strokes.
