Stadium Golf Club’s head pro John Souza birdied the first playoff hole to win the two-day Northeastern New York Section PGA Cobleskill Pro Classic at Cobleskill Golf & Country Club on July 8-9.

Souza, 35, had six birdies (five on the front nine) and two back-nine bogeys to shoot a second round 66 (-4) Tuesday to tie first round leader Bob Mucha from Greenock Country Club. Then, Souza and Mucha squared off on the par-4 first hole in the Sudden Death Playoff. Souza drained his 12-foot birdie putt to earn his first section win and earn the $750 check.
