VICTORIA, British Columbia (Chris Fry/PGA of Canada) — Marc-Etienne Bussieres etched his named on the P.D. Ross trophy at Victoria Golf Club, capturing the 2016 PGA Championship of Canada sponsored by Mr. Lube and presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf.
The 29-year-old from Club de golf Longchamp bested Billy Walsh 3&1 on the 1893 A.V. Macan-designed seaside links gem in the championship’s final match.
“It’s an honour and a privilege to have your name on a trophy that’s as historic as the P.D. Ross,” Bussieres said. “To be beside names like Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino and George Knudson is really something,” he said, adding, “but they’re legends of the game and I’m just trying to get better and keep winning trophies.”

Becker admitted he hasn’t been having fun on the golf course the last couple years. But, on this warm Saturday afternoon in Bermuda, he could finally let his guard down and smile again after winning the Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship.
