He finished at 11-under 277.Former PGA Tour player Omar Uresti, the second- and third-round leader, had a chance to force a playoff, but missed a 15-foot birdie try.

Brown birdied the 18th.Berberian missed the green with his second shot on 18, and had to chip from thick rough on the left side. His ball slide down a ridge, leaving an uphill slider that he holed.I didnt think I threw it away, but knew I wasnt in the drivers seat, Berberian said. I knew Omar or Mark had just moved into a position to take me out. That was a putt I could probably three-putt more times than I could two-putt. Thats why Im spaced out because I cant believe it went in.Berberian earned $75,000 and became the second New England PGA Section Member to win the Walter Hagen Cup since Bob Lendzion in 1986. Berberian is the second-yooungest winner, just 15 days older than Howell Fraser in his 1968 victory.ddddddddddddBerberian pulled his tee shot into the deep rough on 12th, then hit a provisional ball into the water bordering the right side of the fairway. He had a double bogey on the hole Tuesday.I hit that shot so bad, so far left, I had to laugh Berberian said. I had to get over it. The next hardest shot was the two-putt from 70 feet. So, when I got to 13, I was a little frustrated. I knew it was playing long. I hit a good drive and that is what got me back in it. I thought, `My swing still works.Josh Speighht (65) of Locust Hill, Virginia, and 2013 winner Rod Perry (71) of Port Orange, Florida, tied for fourth at 7 under.Karen Paolozzi shot a 70 to tie for seventh at 9 under and break her own event record -- a tie for 49th in 2014 -- for the best finish by a female player.

I came into this week just wanting to make the cut. I had no expectations of finishing this high. This was just thrilling.Ashley Grier, the other female player in the field, missed the cut.
