Olsen, the 19-year-old Cordova, Tenn., player who will be a freshman at Oklahoma State, made a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th to get into the playoff with Joey Garber and Sam Love, then won with a 20-footer.

``It was pretty awesome, making two big putts on the last two holes to win,'' Olsen said. ``But I love playoffs.''

Olsen closed with a 1-under 71 to match Garber and Love at 12-under 276 on the Nicklaus Course at The Club at Carlton Woods. Garber, a Georgia senior from Petoskey, Mich., shot a 69, and Love, a senior at Alabama Birmingham from Trussville, Ala., had a 66.

Olsen received a spot next year in the PGA Tour's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

``Getting that spot is great, but right now winning this is more important,'' Olsen said. ``This is the biggest win I had.''
