KAANAPALI — The Kaanapali Collegiate Classic took an extra hour and a half to finish, but it was worth the wait for University of Georgia sophomore Trent Phillips.

The left-hander birdied the seventh playoff hole — No. 17 — from 15 feet to beat Oklahoma senior Quade Cummins on Sunday after both players ran away from the field and finish at 20-under-par 193.

Cummins birdied his first seven holes in the final round on his way to a 9-under 62. Phillips shot 64. Both players sank long birdie putts on the 16th, the sixth playoff hole, to set up the drama on the last hole under a baking West Maui sun.

“Honestly, I was so exhausted I was just thinking ‘is this ever going to end?’ “ Phillips said. “Q was making some clutch putts. I was just, like, ‘Damn, he came to play,’ and that I had to show up. I made two birdies — I birdied from about 15 feet and he made one on top of me (on the sixth playoff hole).

“So, we go to the next hole and I hit the same exact shot I hit the previous time on that hole and ended up making it this time, so it was pretty sweet.”

Oklahoma’s Quade Cummins tees off on No. 17.

Cummins finished second in this event for the second year in a row.

“I got off to a hot start today and birdied the first seven holes in a row and then took what I could get coming in,” he said. “After five in a row, I really wanted to get to 20 (under), and then when I got to 20, I wanted to get a few more, but I just never had the chance in those final holes.”

Oklahoma won the team title at 47-under 805, five shots better than Washington.

“As a team, we are probably the best in the country right now — we won this weekend with a pretty tough field, some great competition out there,” Cummins said. “I expected us to win it — if we hadn’t, it would have been a disappointment.”

Sooners coach Ryan Hybl said his team took advantage of the benign conditions all three rounds.

Hawaii’s Justin Ngan watches his tee shot on the 16th hole.

“First of all, we love coming out to Hawaii and this is the second time we have been able to win this tournament,” Hybl said. “Our guys feel real good out here on this golf course and I was just telling Sutee (Nitakorn, the head professional) just how great this golf course is, the shape that it’s in. It makes us just continued to want to come back.”

Hybl said his team, ranked No. 5 in the country by golfstat.com, will use the momentum from the win to swing into the offseason and prepare for the spring championship season.

“Our guys did a great job this week, Quade played phenomenal all week long — he started out with seven straight birdies, I have never had a guy do that in my career,” Hybl said. “And he went bogey-free and he had two bogey-free rounds. Just a big-time week for him, but all of our guys pitched in.”

Host Hawaii finished 18th in the 20-team field at 870. The top UH player was Baldwin High School graduate Justin Ngan, who tied for 36th at 4-under 209.
