JUPITER, Fla. – Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ontario, birdied the fourth playoff hole to win a duel between Minor League Golf Tour veterans Wednesday at Abacoa Golf Club. Silverman outlasted Eric Cole of Orlando, FL after they tied at six-under par 66.

Silverman and Cole halved their first three extra holes – the seventh with par-4's, the eighth with bogey-4's and the ninth with par-4's. At the par-5 10th, Cole reached the green in two and Silverman hit his second shot just short of the green. Silverman chipped to within 3 feet and after Cole missed a 5-foot birdie putt, Silverman holed his short birdie putt for the win.
