PLANTATION, Fla. – Yoshio Yamamoto of Guadalajara, Mexico, fired a three under par 68 Wednesday to earn his first victory on the Golfslinger.com Tour. Playing the East course at Jacaranda Golf Club, Yamamoto made six birdies and three bogeys to win by one stroke.
Yamamoto, 28, whose U.S. home is in Myrtle Beach, S.C., was making his fourth start since joining the Golfslinger Tour earlier this month. He received $1,000 from the $4,000 purse, nearly doubling his previous earnings of $1,010.
David Schuster of Turner Hill, MA, Brad Adamonis from Cumberland, RI, and Eric Cole of Orlando tied for second at 69.

The top 50 on this year’s money list will pay a reduced entry fee. The winner is guaranteed $10,000.
