The career Golf Quebec grand slam is complete for Julien Sale. On Thursday, July 25 the Rivermead Golf Club member added the Golf Quebec Men’s Amateur Championship to his resume. It completes the Golf Quebec Triple Crown tournament cycle for him. It was the only title he fell short of winning (by just two strokes) in 2018 when he earned the trophies at the Alexander of Tunis Championship and the Duke of Kent Championship. He repeated the victory at the Tunis earlier this month. He did not compete at the Duke of Kent this year due to a scheduling conflict. No player has won all three titles in a single season.

His domination of the Triple Crown, with four wins in six events over the last two years, is remarkable.

At this year’s Quebec Men’s Amateur held at Beauceville Golf Club, Sale was impressive, opening play with a round of 64 (-8), and completing the event with rounds of 65, 69, and 66 for a record total of -24. He carried a six-stroke lead into the final round.

Taking second place at -18 was Christopher Vandette while Étienne Brault clocked in at -15 to earn third place.

“The day went fairly well, said Sale, a native of Reunion Island, a French colony in the Indian Ocean. “I experienced some difficulties at the beginning, but stayed patient throughout the round and finished very well.”

Unfortunately for Sale, playing only two of the three Triple Crown events makes him ineligible for the Quebec Men’s Amateur Team for the Canadian Amateur. Étienne Papineau (Pinegrove), Étienne Brault, and Olivier Ménard (Whitlock) will represent the province at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship to be held in Nova Scotia, from August 5 to 8, at the Glen Arbour Golf Club, in Hammonds Plains.
