After an opening 67 at the Hawksebury Golf & Curling Club, Brantford, Ontario’s Stephane Dubois held a three shot lead with one round left on the books at the Circuit Canada Pro Tour Desjardins Invitational. The big question on June 10th was whether the young pro would be able to hang on and fend off a number of veteran players.

Despite a shaky front nine on the final day, where a double bogey tarnished his card, he was able to steady himself and close the deal with a back nine score of 34 (-2). His even par final round allowed the Great Lakes Tour member and former Ontario Amateur Champion (67-72) to win by two strokes over Thornhill, Ontario’s Matt Hoffman (72-69).

Quebec-based golfers Dave Levesque (73-69) and Marc-Etienne Bussieres (71-71) shared third place at 142.

For the win Dubois earned $10,000 of the overall purse. It is the biggest cheque of his professional career. He turned pro in 2014 after a successful college career at Lamar University and a win at the Ontario Men’s Amateur in 2013.
