Heading into the week at the Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada at The Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda, the Ontario team of Danny King and Billy Walsh were pegged to be a major factor.
They didn’t disappoint.
Walsh and King, the PGA of Canada’s No. 1 and No. 4-ranked players, put together a three-day total of 21 under par to win the inaugural championship.
King and Walsh took home $12,000 of the $90,000 total prize purse.
King and Walsh headed into Thursday’s final round with a five-shot lead, however, felt some pressure from the groups up ahead— Luc Boisvert/Louis-Pierre Godin and Gordon Burns/Keir Smith. Both teams shot 14 under in the scramble format Thursday.
Under the gun with the pressure applied, the winning tandem admitted the key to their success was putting the ball in play.
“We’re a good fit because the strength of my game is keeping the ball in play and in the fairway,” said Walsh. “When I do that, it frees Danny up with the driver and that’s one of his best weapons,” he said.
