"I don't know how to describe it," said Obremski, recalling his feelings during the round. "You're involved with the process and you just go with it and whatever happens, happens. You're not expecting to make a birdie and not expecting to make a bogey. You're just there. There's really no other way to describe it."
Zylstra's 64 put him through, but Blaum, Adamonis and Lovemark went to No. 10 for a playoff - the fourth straight year the Classic Monday entrant was determined through extra holes.
Adamonis and Lovemark hit the green in regulation, but Blaum was in the rough. Blaum hit his third shot within 6 feet and made par, as did Adamonis, but Lovemark lipped out his par putt.
"Two bad shots, two good shots for me in the playoff," said Blaum, a Web.com player. "I hit 17 greens during regulation. I was hitting the ball great all day. Obviously, that was a bit of a gift from Jamie, but you take whatever you can get."
Blaum was in a six-for-four playoff last year, but lost in a playoff.
"I was the last man out in the playoff last year, so it was good to be on the other side of that," he said.
Adamonis qualified for the PGA Tour in 2008 with a T9 at Q-School in 2007. He spent two years on the PGA Tour and finished in the top 50 in all but one tournament, but also missed the cut in 14 events. In 2009, he missed the cut in nine of his last 10 events and has been battling to get back on the big tour since then.
"I was really nervous because I've been very close because I missed by 1, 4 and 5 (strokes) this year," he said. "Shooting good scores like 66s and 67s. I eagled No. 8, I holed out. That was sweet."

IN HIS fourth attempt to qualify for the Greenbrier Classic, seven-time W.Va. Open champion David Bradshaw was done in by a bad tee shot on No. 14.
Bradshaw missed a birdie putt on No. 13 when he was 3-under par. However, his first shot on 14 went into the trees right and his second shot into the water on the left of the fairway. He bogeyed the hole and finished with a 69.
Former Capital and Marshall University star Christian Brand also shot a 69. Georgia Southwestern State University golf Coach Darcy Donaldson shot a 68.
Cooke and Ze-cheng "Marty" Dou shared low-amateur honors at 70.

OBREMSKI, ZYLSTRA, Blaum and Adamonis will try to do something only two golfers in the brief history of the Classic Open Qualifier have managed to do - make the cut at the Greenbrier Classic.
Of the 12 players who earned a spot via the Monday event, only Andre Stolz and Steve Allan in 2011 played four days. Stolz earned $14,430 for a T49 finish and Allan earned $13,380 for a T57 finish.
