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 the other contenders at the top of leaderboard at 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 them 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,” said Levesque. “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.”
The Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada featured different team formats for each day—fourball, foursomes and scramble—with Levesque Bussieres taking home $12,000 of the $90,000 total prize purse.
“The beauty of this event is the format,” said Levesque. “You get teams contending this week you don’t usually see, plus you have powerhouse teams too and everyone is just making lots of birdies to keep things exciting.”
