WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Sal Spallone of Vero Beach birdied the last two holes of regulation and parred three playoff holes Tuesday at Ironhorse Country Club to win on the Golfslinger.com Tour for the sixth time.
Finishing more than 30 minutes after Devin Kay of Potomac, Md., had bogeyed the 18th for 68, Spallone pulled even with birdies at 17 and 18, his fifth and sixth of the day to go with two bogeys on the first seven holes. Kay also made six birdies and two bogeys.
In the playoff, they halved the par-4 first and second holes in regulation. At the par-3 third, Kay three-putted from 30 feet, missing an six footer for par, and Spallone two-putted from 25 feet for par and the victory.
Spallone earned $800 from the $4,128 purse, raising his career earnings to $38,141 since he joined the Golfslinger Tour at the start of the 2009 season. Kay received $625. He has played regularly since July, 2010, collecting $41,701 and two titles.
Matt Springer of Palm City earned $550 and finished solo 3rd at 1-under par 71.
The 37th Golfslinger event of the year drew 32 players. The Tour’s next event is on Thursday at the Country Club of Coral Springs. This is Golfslinger’s first visit to CCCS, which opened in 1969.
There was $140 in the skins pot with 8 skins out worth $17.50 each.
