SEASIDE — Blake Kukula broke a three-way tie with a birdie on a playoff hole to win his third straight Seaside Invitational April 22. On the playoff hole, Kukula got his second shot near the hole and hit a three-foot birdie putt. Kukula lost a playoff at the same event in 2015 as an eighth-grader before lopsided wins in 2016 and ‘17. Kukula, Boileau and Lane were tied at 74 after 18 holes of regulation.

Brenden Chabot was in top form with a 97 at the event. Tenyson Ramsey shot a 101 and Charley Short scored 109 as Ilwaco finished fifth.
