ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. - Ben Silverman parred two playoff holes Monday at the Links at Madison Green to outlast Paul Scaletta and earn his seventh victory on the Golfslinger.com Tour.
After they tied at one over par 73, they halved the first hole with par-4s. At the second, Scaletta, of Jupiter, three-putted from 30 feet and Silverman, of Palm Beach Gardens, won with par-5. Each had two birdies and three bogeys in regulation.
A combination of fast greens and winds from the back side of Hurricane Sandy led to the highest winning score in a Golfslinger tournament since June, 2009, at the Country Club of Miami, also a 73.
Silverman received $1,000 from the $2,762 purse. Scaletta, second among 18 starters, earned $500. Scaletta won his fourth Golfslinger event last Wednesday at Abacoa GC in Jupiter.
There was $70 in the skins pot with 6 skins out worth $11.67 each.
