CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Dan McCarthy of Syracuse, N.Y., birdied his second playoff hole Monday at the Tournament Players Club at Eagle Trace for his third straight victory on the Golfslinger.com Tour.
McCarthy beat Chris Scialo of New City, N.Y., after they tied at six under par 66. Scialo birdied all four par-5 holes and finished with four straight birdies. McCarthy, in the final threesome and completing his round about a half-hour after Scialo, bogeyed the 18th.
In the playoff, they matched par-4s on the first hole. At the par-4 second, Scialo missed a six-footer for par, then McCarthy sank a five-foot birdie putt for the win. In regulation, each made seven birdies and a bogey.
McCarthy collected $750 from the $2,880 purse for his 15th Golfslinger title, raising his career earnings to $49,067 since October, 2007, of which $2,195 has come in his three wins since last Tuesday (Sept. 10). Scialo, second among 18 starters, received $600. He has four Golfslinger victories.
Two more 18-hole events are scheduled this week: Wednesday, North Palm Beach CC, and Thursday, Jacaranda GC, Plantation.
