With a final round 68 Meehan thought he had won the event (he was told on 16 he had a two shot lead) but it would take a three hole playoff for him to finally capture his third Long Island Open title.
Three times in the past five years (2008, 2009, 2012) Mike has raised the winning trophy.
Nowadays Mike is busy with his Head Professional duties at the Pine Hollow Country Club -- usually waking up at 5am and getting to the course. He beat Matt Dobyns in the playoff who is also taking on the challenges as a first year Head Pro at the Fresh Meadow Club.
Both Meehan and Dobyns finished one stroke ahead of Joe Saladino who was trying to become the first amateur to win the Long Island Open since 1928.
Three's a charm -- congratulations Mike!
