Former PGA TOUR Canada player Craig Hocknull appeared to draw on his tour experience on Thursday as he put up an impressive final round on his way to capturing the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada presented by Titleist & FootJoy.

Hocknull,who lives in Arizona but is a member of the PGA of Australia, PGA of America, and the PGA of Canada, finished up his week at Port Royal Golf Club in Bermuda with a 66. His 209 total (74-69-66) earned him the top honours by five strokes over his nearest pursuer, overnight leader Brian Hadley of London, Ontario. The top ranked player in the PGA of Canada, Dave Levesque, took third.

“This is just an awesome win,” said Hocknull who tied for third in this championship in 2015. “Last year I came close to winning this championship and I wanted to make sure that this year in Bermuda I walked away as the winner.”

In closing out the championship, Hocknull’s five-under-par score on the day was the best recorded by any of the 39 players in the field all week long.

“It really all started to click for me on No. 7 when I made a nice two-putt birdie, then I birdied the ninth and really just kept it rolling from there,” Hocknull said.

For the victory Hocknull earned (CDN) $8,000.
