LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Joel Gibbons of Ocala sank a five-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole Tuesday to capture his first victory on the Tour. Gibbons outlasted David Smith of Ruston, La., after they tied at one under par 71 during a cool and rainy round at Winston Trails Golf Club.

In regulation, Gibbons made three birdies and two bogeys compared to four birdies and his third bogey of the day at No. 18 by Smith, who finished about half an hour ahead of Gibbons. Returning to the par-4 18th, Smith two putted for par from 25 feet before Gibbons made his short putt for the win.

Making his 22nd Golfslinger start, including 17 this year, Gibbons received $540 to up his career earnings to $2,370. Smith, second among 10 starters, has five wins and $52,285 since joining Golfslinger in September, 2005.

Golfslinger plays its 110th tournament of the year Thursday on the South Course at nearby Fountains CC, followed by WPB Golf Club Monday and Jacaranda in Ft. Lauderdale Tuesday before going on a 5 day break for Thanksgiving.
