Craig Hocknull pulled away from the pack Thursday at Port Royal Golf Club in Bermuda, winning the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada presented by Titleist & FootJoy.
Hocknull’s three-day total of 4-under, 209 (74-69-66) was five shots better than Brian Hadley, who held a slim one-stroke lead heading into Thursday’s final round. The PGA of Canada’s No. 1-ranked player Dave Levesque finished alone in third at 3-over for the championship.
“This is just an awesome win,” Hocknull said. “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.”
The 41-year-old’s final round at Port Royal featured an impressive seven birdies and just two bogeys. His 5-under-par round was the lowest by any competitor all week.
“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.
Lindsay Bernakevitch and Gordon Burns rounded out the top five, finishing T4.
