Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Chamberlain won the 2013 PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada in dramatic fashion on Wednesday after facing a three-shot deficit entering the final round. The Head Professional from Gowan Brae Golf Club in Bathurst, N.B., held off a late charge from the field before securing his two-stroke victory over a two-time champion of the event. He secured the win with a 9-under par 207 victory total in the 3 day event.
The Ryder Course at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla. proved to be a test with some very challenging pin placement's during the final round. "I was just trying to take it one hole at a time," said Chamberlain after the victory.
WHAT’S IN ADAM’S BAG?: Titleist Pro V1x golf ball, 913D3 driver (8.5°), 913F fairway metal (13.5°), 712 irons (3-PW), Vokey Design SM4 gap (52°) and lob (58°) wedges, Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Notchback putter.
Of the 86-player field, 80% relied upon Titleist golf balls, more than six times the nearest competitor with 13%. Titleist golf balls were the choice of 20 of the top 23 finishers in the event.
Team Ontario won the Inter Zone competition this year with Titleist Brand Ambassadors Dan Greenwood (Heron Point Golf Links, Alberton, ON.,) and Brian Hutton (Binbrook, ON.,) leading the charge.
With his victory, Chamberlain moves to No. 33 on the PGA of Canada Player Rankings.
