“I knew I had to get it closer, because that’s the point of match play,” said Colella, who is from Marcellus and who will play collegiately at Binghamton. “And then I just heard, ‘whoa, ahhh!’ … I was like, maybe I don’t have to putt! It was kind of given to me, but it was crazy. The whole playoff, I was praying, just give me strength, give me patience, everything I do is for a greater purpose, and obviously, if it was meant to be, it was meant to be.”Estrada’s third shot was about 10 feet away from the hole, and after Colella tapped in his putt for par, Estrada’s putt for par went wide of the hole, which clinched the title for Colella, who won the first International Junior Masters he played in.“I wish every course had something like this,” said Colella, who was cheered on by Tynan Jones, a golfer from Skaneateles High School who will be his teammate at Binghamton this fall. “I’m jealous. I can’t imagine a course where hundreds of members are watching random kids they don’t know. That’s insane. It’s awesome, and it’s such a pleasure to be here.”Jackson Ormond won the platinum bracket 4 and 3 against Rocco Randazzo of Lewiston. Juan Monckeberg of Chile won the gold bracket 2 and 1 against Tim Reilly.Teagan Mauro of Orchard Park won the silver bracket, defeating Corey Edgar of Scotland 6 and 5.
