Thursday, August 23, 2012

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Eric Cole and Ben Silverman, winners of the two Tour tournaments played earlier this week, went five extra holes Thursday to determine a champion at Ironhorse Country Club in the third event in four days.

Cole survived with a two-putt par from 30 feet at the par-5 fifth hole to outlast Silverman after they tied at five under par 67. They halved the first four playoff holes with pars. Silverman had bunkered his second shot at No. 5, reached the green in four and missed a seven footer for par.

In regulation, Cole, 24, of Orlando had three birdies on each nine and bogeyed the par-4 17th hole. Silverman, 25, of Palm Beach Gardens and Thornhill, Ontario, made five birdies and did not bogey. Cole was the winner Monday at Jupiter Country Club and earned his fifth career Golfslinger title here Thursday. Silverman triumphed Tuesday at the TPC at Eagle Trace in Coral Springs for his third Golfslinger win.

Cole received $1,000 from the $3,614 purse. Silverman, second among 26 players, collected $525.

Three more one-day tournaments are scheduled next week to complete the competition for a $1,000 bonus to be used toward Monday qualifying for a Tour event later this year: Monday, Wanderers Club, Wellington; Wednesday, Jacaranda GC, Plantation; and Thursday, Links @ Madison Green, Royal Palm Beach.

There was $140 in the skins pot with 9 skins out worth $15.55 each.
