The inaugural Nova Scotia Open had a big bump along the way with the arrival of post tropical storm Arthur moving the third round to Sunday, but the Web .com Tour event ended in style from a Canadian perspective.
Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., parred the first playoff hole against American Derek Fathauer, who bogeyed, to win at Ashburn Golf Club in Halifax and set himself up for graduation to the PGA Tour next year.
Fathauer opened with six birdies on the front nine and added another on 12 to get to 13 under for the tournament, before bogeying two of his final three holes to finish the round with a 66, which left him at 11 under.
Meanwhile, Sloan parred his way in after opening the back nine with three birdies and a bogey on his first five holes to finish with a one-under 70, when left him at 11 under, as well.
Sloan, who was tied for the lead at the midway point of the tournament, began Sunday with a third round 70 after Arthur struck Nova Scotia on Saturday, forcing the third round to be postponed. He earned $117,000 for the win.
Sloan wasn’t the only Canadian to finish in the top 10 as Adam Hadwin shot a final round 65 to tie for seventh at six under.
