Coventry's Matt Cryer held his nerve at the first hole of a three-way play-off to win the Midland Amateur Open Championship at Little Aston in Birmingham.
Cryer, who at plus three was one of the lowest handicap golfers in the field of 47 players, beat off the challenge of Dan Seaman and Nick Taylor after the trio could not be separated at the conclusion of the 36 holes.
Cryer fired a round of 71 in the morning but bettered that by three shots in his afternoon match.
Seaman, of Gainsborough Golf Club and the son of former England goalkeeper David, had matched Cryer's scores while Taylor, of Derby, fired a 70 in the morning and 69 after lunch.
But Cryer, an experienced player and one of the leading amateurs in Warwickshire, birdied the first play-off hole to claim the title.
