2018 Championship Highlights

Chasing history isn’t easy, but you wouldn’t have guessed that by watching Jason Thresher of West Suffield, Connecticut tap in his par putt on his 54th hole of regulation to win the 109th Massachusetts Open Championship at GreatHorse.

Thresher finished with a three-day score of 11-under par 205 to win his third straight Massachusetts Open Championship title. He becomes only the fifth competitor in the 109-year history of the event to win three straight tournaments.
