CANISIUS COLLEGE ATHLETICS

No alternative text provided.BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Rising-junior David Hanes, a member of the Canisius golf team, made a four-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole Sunday afternoon to win the 2018 Erie County Amateur Golf Championship. This year's Erie County Amateur Golf Championship was played at Grover Cleveland Golf Course in Buffalo.

Hanes, who fired a three-under par score of 66 on Saturday and led the tournament after 18 holes, carded a 71 on Sunday, sending him to a sudden-death playoff against Matt Mariconda. Both players finished the 36-hole event with a combined score of 137.

This is the second golf championship of the summer for Hanes, who also won the New York State Golf Association Men's Amateur Four-Ball crown with his older brother, Billy, back on May 23.

Fellow Canisius golfer Michael Wells, a rising-sophomore on the Golden Griffins' 2018-19 roster, finished tied for 14th in the field with a two-round score of 145.
