Wiebe defeats Mason in playoff to win GHC

June 14, 2011

After three rounds, 54 holes and two 19-under-par scores, it took three playoff holes to decide this year’s Greater Hickory Classic champion.

Mark Wiebe, a resident of Denver, Colo., defeated James Mason in the third playoff hole Sunday to claim the 2011 Greater Hickory Classic championship and the $262,500 winner’s prize.

The victory by Wiebe breaks a 77-tournament losing streak.

“I didn’t know it had been 77 tournaments since I’ve won,” Wiebe said. “That was kind of a bummer to know. I’m tickled to have busted that drought.”
