NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. – After a double bogey at the par-4 ninth hole, Jimmy Lytle of Ocean Ridge birdied the next four enroute to a three under par 68 Thursday at the North Palm Beach Country Club for his 36th victory on the Golfslinger.com Tour.
Lytle, 27, had birdied the third hole, turned in 36, and after birdies at 10, 11, 12 and 13, he finished with another birdie at 16 hole and a bogey at 17.
He received $625 from the $2,080 purse, raising his career earnings since he turned pro in August, 2008, to $129,820. He joined Golfslinger in July, 2006, winning his first start as a pro. Two of his 36 wins were as an amateur.
The career record for Golfslinger victories is 37 by Steve LeBrun of Palm Springs, who is now on the PGA Tour. Sunny Kim of Palm Beach Gardens is the tour’s leading money winner with $131,743, followed by Lytle and LeBrun, third at $106,394.
