PALM CITY, Fla. – Jimmy Lytle of Ocean Ridge fired a four-under par 67 on the Osprey Creek course at Martin Downs Country Club on Thursday for his record 40th victory on the Golfslinger Minor League Golf Tour.
He overcame a double bogey at the par-3 third and a bogey at the par-4 sixth with birdies at Nos. 1, 5, 7, 8, 10, 13 and 17, winning by a shot. He received $600 from the $2,478 purse, raising his career earnings to $155,721 since July 10, 2006.
Lytle and Justin Peters of Stuart had been tied with career totals of 39 wins apiece. Two of Lytle’s were before he turned pro in August, 2008. Peters is currently on the PGA Canadian Tour. He won his first Golfslinger start in September, 2006, at the Florida Club in Stuart.
Golfslinger’s 83rd tournament of the year drew 21 entries.
Monday Golfslinger returns to Jupiter Country Club. Thursday the tour will be at Breakers West, which is a host venue for WEB.com Tour Qualifying in October.
