| ||Ryan Hietala closed with a two- under 69 to force a playoff with David
Branshaw, who stumbled to a two-over 73 in the final round. They finished at
19-under-par 265 before heading to a playoff. In the extra session, Hietala
parred the first playoff hole to claim his second Nationwide Tour title.
Hietala is in the field and will attempt to snap the tour`s streak of no
repeat winners. The Golf Channel will carry two hours of action the first two
days, then has three hours of coverage on Saturday and Sunday. The Nationwide
Tour shifts to Ohio next week for the Nationwide Children`s Hospital
Invitational, where Bill Lunde was the champion last year.
