It took extra time Tuesday at Deer Ridge Golf Club in Kitchener, Ont., on Tuesday, but the round of 16 matches are set at the PGA Championship of Canada
A five-man playoff for the final three spots that lasted three holes was needed to determine the PGA Championship of Canada match play bracket. Kevin Senecal, Nick Kenney and Ed Maunder outlasted Oliver Tubb and Lee Curry.
With their playoff victories, Senecal will play first-seeded Wes Heffernan, while Kenney meets the No. 2 seed Sonny Michaud, and Maunder squares off versus Brian Hadley, who holds the course record at Deer Ridge (a 59 in 2013 during the PGA of Ontario Championship).
After his round Tuesday, Heffernan said he’s playing confidently which he believes is the recipe for success in match play.
“I’m playing pretty well right now and my game (Tuesday) was in a good spot,” he said. “I’ve got some confidence heading into the match play portion of this tournament and that’s the sort of thing you need if you want to win.”
