Playing in the final group after sharing the first round lead at 68 with five other players Wednesday, Silverman and Sunny Kim were tied at nine under par through 35 holes on the Lakes course. At the par-4 18th, Silverman made a six footer for the win moments after Kim had missed from 12 feet.

This being the 3rd of four Tour Majors, the winner was guaranteed $10,000, while the runner-up received $4,000 from the $33,265 purse. Kim, also of Palm Beach Gardens, finished second among 63 starters. The final GOLFslinger Tour Major is the Tour Championship in December.
