PALM COAST — Ponte Vedra coach Mickey Leapley was not happy that his squad did not defend its St. Johns County boys golf title earlier in the week.

But his squad gave him a pretty good consolation gift Saturday, winning the two-day Titan Invitational at Hammock Beach Resort, hosted by Olympia High.

"We played good at county (finishing nine strokes behind Creekside)," said Ponte Vedra junior Stewart Slayden, the 2017 Class 2A state champ. "We shot even-par (288). Pretty much in any other county that would win. It was good to come here and win."

After jumping out to an 11-stroke lead against a prestigious field at the Ocean Course on Friday, the Sharks held on Saturday at The Conservatory Course to win by three strokes over Palm Beach Benjamin, 573-576.

Slayden finished third overall with a 6-under-par 66-72—138, while Davis Lee was fourth with a 69-70—139. Nease's Logan Underwood, who won the county title with a 66 at Slammer and Squire on Wednesday, was sixth overall at the Titan with a 2-under 74-68—142 to lead the Panthers to a seventh-place team finish.

Benjamin's Alex Vogelsong was the medalist with a 10-under 64-70—134. Circle Christian's Canon Claycomb was one stroke behind at 70-65—135. Circle Christian finished third overall with a 590.

The Sharks carded three of the four under-par scores at the Ocean Course on Friday as Justin Ortiguera matched Lee's 69, and finished with a 145.

"The Ocean Course is pretty gettable," said Slayden, who produced seven of his 11 birdies during the weekend at the Ocean Course. "It's open off the tee and the greens are good."

"You get your line right, you can make every putt," Lee said.
