LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ontario, won his second Minor League Golf Tour event in as many days with a six under par 66 Thursday on the South course at Fountains Country Club. That's the same score Silverman shot Wednesday at Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter, FL but he still needed four extra holes to beat Eric Cole of Orlando, FL in a playoff.
At Fountains Country Club, Silverman made seven birdies, four on the front, and bogeyed the par-3 17th hole. Tied for second at 67 among 29 entries were Carl McCauley of Parkland, FL on seven birdies and two bogeys, and Charlie Winegardner from Lothian, MD, with six birdies and a bogey.
It was Silverman's 30th MLGT victory since September, 2010. He received $675 from the $3,220 purse, raising his career earnings to $115,386.80.
Three 18 hole tournaments are scheduled next week: Monday, Estate course at PGA National, Palm Beach Gardens; Wednesday, Hammock Creek GC, Palm City; and Thursday, Fountains South course.
