NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. – Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ontario, birdied the first two holes, then rolled to a five under par 66 Monday at North Palm Beach Country Club for his 34th victory on the Minor League Golf Tour.

Silverman also birdied four of five holes midway through the round and closed with his seventh birdied of the day at the par 5 18th hole to win by two strokes. He made two bogies on holes 4 and 7.
