Brad Kerfoot outlasted the field Friday at Camelot Golf and Country Club to win the 2015 PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented.
Kerfoot, from Maple Downs Golf Club, finished the three-day championship at nine under, beating Eric Locke of Wolf Creek Golf Resort and Club de Golf Longchamp’s Marc-Etienne Bussieres by a shot.
“It’s really unbelievable to have won this national championship because I know all the great names who have won and have their names on the trophy,” said Kerfoot said.
“This is something that I’ll graciously accept and cherish for a long time,” he said.
Kerfoot, who started the day two shots back of Bussieres, fired a final round, four-under-par 68 that featured six birdies.
“I had a really good game plan all week and tried to play to my strengths which is hitting fairways and greens,” Kerfoot said. “At the end of the day, I’m really just a grinder and I’m proud of that.”
With the win, Kerfoot becomes the second player from Smiths Falls, Ont., to win a PGA of Canada national championship in 2015. Brooke Henderson won the PGA Women’s Championship of Canada earlier this summer at Burlington Golf and Country Club.
