October 2, 2013
In one of the best finishes in the WPIAL Individual Golf Championships, Corey Long of South Fayette bogeyed the fourth playoff hole to defeat Matt Holuta of Indiana to claim the Class AAA title at Diamond Run. The players stayed even thru the first three playoff holes, after their tee shots, Long hit wide of the green on number 4, Holuta bladed his approach shot into an unplayable lie and had to take a drop. Long had trouble on his third shot but was able to putt out for the win.Long said his goal was just to hit fairways and greens and make pars, he finished with a par on the final hole of regulation. The senior finished 26th in last year’s championship, he said that was a big learning experience going into this year.
