    Brady rallied from seventh place with an even-par final round of 72 to finish tied at 149 with Eichele, who closed with a 73. Brady sealed the victory with a par on the second playoff hole at the Planter's Row course at Port Royal Plantation. First-round leader Ed Craig of Orlando finished third in the championship flight at 150.
