This spring Hugo Bernard won the NCAA Division II Men’s Golf Championship. It is among the many titles the Mont St-Hilaire golfer has won in his burgeoning golf career but one trophy that eluded him so for had been the one presented to the winner of the Golf Quebec Alexander of Tunis Championship.

In 2013 the Laval-sur-le-Lac member finished second in the Quebec Provincial major, and he followed that with a tie for 5th in his appearance last year.

In a golf game with a member of the Flagstick.com team last month the 21 year-old Team Canada member remarked how much he would like to win the Championship. Now, he has his wish.

Bernard accomplished the feat starting with an opening round of 68 in the 36 hole championship being played this year at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club. He sealed it with second round 66 that put him above the field with a 134 total (-8), two strokes better than defending champion Étienne Papineau. Papineau playing out of Pinegrove Golf Club, shot 69-67 (-6) for the event and was the only other player besides Bernard to finish under par.

While Bernard’s 66 was impressive, it was made even more so by how he did it. On the par 71 layout he posted an opening 37 that left him a few strokes back of the lead. He remedied that on the back nine with six birdies and no bogies. A 29 against the par of 35.

“As a post entry I wasn’t too concerned about winning but I am happy”, the new champion shared with Flagstick. “I came to Ottawa to visit some of my friends. On today’s game I was rolling the ball well and made only 2 mistakes on the front side. 29 on the back wasn’t too bad.”

Ryan Sevigny of Stittsville, Ontario finished in third place at even par (69-73).
