Craig Hocknull pulled away from the pack at Port Royal Golf Club in Bermuda, winning the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada presented by Titleist & FootJoy.
Hocknull’s three-day total of 4-under, 209 (74-69-66) was five shots better than Brian Hadley, who held a slim one-stroke lead heading into Thursday’s final round. The PGA of Canada’s No. 1-ranked player Dave Levesque finished alone in third at 3-over for the championship.
“This is just an awesome win,” Hocknull said. “Last year I came close to winning this championship and I wanted to make sure that this year in Bermuda I walked away as the winner.”

With a 15-foot birdie putt on the last hole at the Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda, the Quebec duo of Dave Levesque and Marc-Etienne Bussieres separated themselves from a logjam at the top of the Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada.
The clinching putt at No. 18 vaulted the pair to 20-under-par (64-65-64), separating themselves from four teams — Chris Barber/Lee Curry; Dean Brown/Pat Marcia; Ian Doig/Ed Maunder; and Brad Kerfoot/Michael Moniz — all at 19-under-par.
“I was really trying to focus on my breathing standing over that last putt and not think about winning the trophy,” Levesque said. “I knew what had to be done because I’m a leaderboard watcher and I knew exactly what was happening with all these teams stacked up.”

FONTHILL, Ontario (Chris Fry/PGA of Canada) — What started out as just an opportunity to have fun with a couple friends turned into a big win at the inaugural Hyundai PGA Scramble for the team from Angus Glen.
The squad — which featured Patrick O’Leary, Dan Mesley, Mike Asselin, David Fotheringham and PGA of Canada professional Terry Kim — pulled out the big victory at Lookout Point Country Club in Fonthill, Ont., besting the home course favourites by the slimmest of margins.
“We just had fun out there and that has been our motto since the very start,” the Angus Glen team said. “But in the end, as just a bunch of amateurs, it feels really cool to be crowned as national championship winners.”

THORNBURY, Ontario (Chris Fry/PGA of Canada) — Dustin Risdon put the hammer down at Lora Bay Golf Club, winning the PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented by Callaway Golf in astonishing fashion.

“All week I had the same goal of getting to 18-under-par,” Risdon said. “I had to make three birdies coming home to get to the number and I did, so that’s pretty awesome.”
Risdon’s final round 8-under-par 64 included nine birdies and a bogey—his first and only of the championship—at No. 11.
