HALIFAX, Nova Scotia -- Canada's Roger Sloan won the Nova Scotia Open on Sunday for first Web.com Tour title, holing a 5-foot par putt on the first hole of a playoff with Derek Fathauer.

The 27-year-old Sloan, a former Texas-El Paso player from Calgary, Alberta, played 37 holes Sunday after high wind from Tropical Storm Arthur wiped out third-round play Saturday.

Sloan closed with rounds of 71 and 70 to match Fathauer at 11-under 273 on Ashburn Golf Club's New Course. Fathauer had rounds of 71 and 66.

Sloan earned $117,000 to push his season total to $149,303.

John Mallinger shot 67-73 to finish third at 8 under.
