TASMANIAN Ben Elliott shone in the final round of the 2013 Tasmanian Junior Masters tournament at the Tasmanian Golf Club on Friday, forcing a play-off with Victorians Brett Coletta and David Micheluzzi.
In tough conditions, Elliott, of Smithton, and Micheluzzi both carded rounds of 78 while Coletta returned a one-over-par 73.
The trio finished with six-over-par scores of 294 which forced the teens into a sudden-death play-off.
Elliott emerged victorious on the first play-off hole, the par four seventh, holing out in regulation.

Victoria's Georgia Macklan, from the Jubilee Golf Club, collected the corresponding girls' title after a tough day on the greens.
Macklan finished with third and fourth round scores of 86 and 79 to win by two strokes on 322 from Queensland's Kimberley Ikin.
Ikin returned 83 and 82 for her 72-hole total of 324.
Launceston golfer Mitch Van Noord picked up the Tasmanian under-24 title.
Van Noord finished with rounds of 76, 78, 74 and 79, a 72-hole total of 307.
