Walt Balinski of Las Vegas made the big putts when the pressure was on to defeat Frank Sanpei 3-and-2 in the 18-hole match play finals of USPT’s Cleveland Golf/Srixon Las Vegas Open on May 7. The two finalists had the lowest medal play scores on Friday and Saturday, which brought them together in the finals. Both golfers won a Cleveland Golf TFI 2135 putter. In addition, Walt won a Stay ‘n Play 2 Night Golf Getaway from Diamond Resorts.
The Las Vegas putting event was the third USPT tournament held in conjunction with Golf Fest in 2016. The other two shows were located in Mesa, AZ and San Diego. Next up for the USPT are plans for a USPT Championship. Stay tuned!
