Elliot Saltman was pipped for the £10,000 jackpot prize in a three-man play-off climax to the PGA EuroPro Tour event, the Astbury Hall Classic at the Cheshire venue.
The winner was Yorkshireman James Hepworth who relegated Saltman and David Horsey to joint second place by sinking a 2ft birdie putt at the par-3 18th in the play-off.
Saltman, who had rounds of 67, 68 and 69 and Horsey earned £3,750 apiece.
Hepworth, Saltman and European Tour regular Horsey had finished the 54-hole event six under par to force the play-off.
Saltman (Archerfield Links) had begun the day second on five under. A double bogey on the first was far from an ideal start but the Scot responded with a birdie at the second. Bogeys at four and eight followed and Saltman looked to be out of contention. However, four back-nine birdies gave him a place in the play-off, where he was unlucky not to make birdie playing out of a greenside bunker.
Elliot's youngest brother Zack finished joint 11th on 208 with rounds of 73, 68 and 67 for a two-under total of 208 round the par-70 circut. He earned £725.
Tartan Tour regular Neil Fenwick (Dunbar) finished the third best Scot in joint 13th place on 209 with runds of 72, 65 and 72. He earned £475.
Gavin Dear (Noah's Ark) picked up £277 for joint 31st place overall on 212 with rounds of 76, 65 and 71.
