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.”
The 41-year-old’s final round at Port Royal featured an impressive seven birdies and just two bogeys. His 5-under-par round was the lowest by any competitor all week.
“It really all started to click for me on No. 7 when I made a nice two-putt birdie, then I birdied the ninth and really just kept it rolling from there,” Hocknull said.
Lindsay Bernakevitch and Gordon Burns rounded out the top five, finishing T4. Click here to see the Full 2016 PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada Leaderboard.
