A heroic final putt broke a logjam of five teams and brought a victory to Dave Levesque (Richelieu Valley GC) and Marc-Etienne Bussieres (Club de Golf Longchamp) at the 2016 Nike Golf PGA Team Championship of Canada.

Levesque sank a fifteen-foot birdie on the 18th hole at the Mid-Ocean Club in Bermuda to get their team to -20 (65-64-64) for the week. It turned out to be enough for the victory, putting them one stroke ahead of four teams that ultimately shared 2nd place.

Among those teams were Chris Barber/Lee Curry on the PGA of Ottawa, Dean Brown and Pat Marcia of the PGA of Saskatchewan, and PGA of Ontario members Ian Doig/Ed Maunder and Brad Kerfoot/Michael Moniz.

“I was really trying to focus on my breathing standing over that last putt and not think about winning the trophy,” Levesque said. “I knew what had to be done because I’m a leaderboard watcher and I knew exactly what was happening with all these teams stacked up.”

Bussieres and Levesque split $12,000 for the win. Each of the teams sharing second earned $7125.00.
