Brad Kerfoot picked an appropriate spot to win a national championship.  The 35 year old pro from the Maple Downs Golf Club might work in the Toronto area but his roots are in Smiths Falls, about an hour down the road from the Camelot Golf & Country Club where he secured the biggest win of his career on Friday. He is the 2015 champion of the PGA of Canada Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented by Callaway Golf.

Kerfoot, an outstanding junior and college player who was recently inducted into the Ontario College Sports Hall of Fame, made a clutch up and down on the 18th hole at Camelot Golf & Country Club in Cumberland to secure a one stroke win over Eric Locke of Alberta and Gatineau, QC native Marc-Etienne Bussieres.

“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,” Kerfoot said. “This is something that I’ll graciously accept and cherish for a long time.”

For the 54 holes Kerfoot recorded rounds of 70, 69, and saved the best for last, a 68, for a -9 total on the Thomas McBroom designed layout.  It allowed him to catch and surpass Bussieres who held a two stroke lead after 36 holes.

“I had a really good game plan all week and tried to play to my strengths which is hitting fairways and greens,” Kerfoot said. “But at the end of the day, I’m really just a grinder and I’m proud of that.”
