Brian McCann of Mississauga, Ont., connected on a 12-foot par putt on the final hole to win the PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada.
McCann shot a three-day total of six-under-par 210 for the one-stroke victory over G.W. King of Thornbury, Ont., and Nick Kenney, also of Mississauga.
“I had 60 yards to the pin on 18 and with the golf course being this wet, I got the club stuck in the ground,” McCann said about his approach to the par five finishing hole at the Ridge at Manitou in McKellar, Ont.
“So then I have this 10 or 12-yard shot to get up and down and I didn’t really hit that one well either, but I knew I had to make par to win the golf tournament and I made it right in the middle,” he said.
With the victory, the Brampton Golf Club assistant professional becomes a two-time winner of the PGA Assistants’ Championship, his first victory coming in 2010.
McCann’s final round one-under-par 71 included a pair of birdies on the front nine and a lone bogey on the par-5 13th.
“I played good golf all day and my only bogey came from 79 yards on a par five, when I pulled it left of the green and didn’t get up and down, but other than that, it was pretty good. I think I only missed three greens all day,” said McCann.
