Slocum Trusts SYNR-G and StaSof to Win at Sea Island

Heath Slocum (SYNR-G, StaSof) closed with a final round 2-under 68 at the Sea Island Golf Club to win the new McGladrey Classic on Sunday. Slocum finished with a 14-under total of 266 and a one-shot victory over Bill Haas who was looking to win for the second consecutive week.

Slocum was in a three-way tie for the lead coming to the 16th hole. In a matter of moments, one of his competitors hit into the hazard and made double bogey while the other three-putted for bogey. Slocum was trying to lag his putt from 60 feet toward the front of the green when it banged into the pin and disappeared for birdie.

“That’s a putt he’ll always remember,” Haas said.

It was the fourth victory of Slocum's career, and should put him just outside the top 50 in the world. Slocum moved to No. 29 on the PGA Tour money list with one tournament left on his schedule. The top 30 earn invitations to the Masters. It was his first victory since he won The Barclays last year in the FedEx Cup playoffs by making a 10-foot birdie on the last hole to beat several of the world's best players.

Haas, who won last week at the Viking Classic for his second victory this year, all but locked up his return to Augusta National. He drilled an approach on the par-5 15th to 10 feet for eagle to give himself a shot at back-to-back wins. The runner-up finish was worth $432,000, which moved him to No. 18 on the money list. Most of the players in the top 30 are not playing much this time of the year, and it’s unlikely Haas will be knocked out of the top 30.
