It was played out the way a Hollywood movie script is written, and the silence during Travis Graybeal's 5-foot birdie putt was deafening.

Pendleton golfer Graybeal sank the putt on par-5 No. 9 to win the Sole Survivor title to conclude the 51st annual La Grande Country Club Elks Tour-nament Sunday afternoon. When the ball dropped in the cup, runner-up Jared Blaylock of La Grande was shut out since the best he could do was a five for par on the 500-yard hole.

It was the youngest two players among the 11 involved in the Sole Survivor who finished first and second.

Bob Staab of Portland finished third. He had a bogey five on par-4 No. 8 and was eliminated, while Blaylock savored a birdie and Graybeal had a par.

The other eight players in the Sole Survivor were Brian Bell, Gary Graybeal, Kelly Mutch, Ron Evans, Randy Anderson, Craig Braseth, Gary Marr and John Poyner.

Following are the top finishers in low gross and net among the 107 players in the Elks tourney:
