the PGA Championship of Canada, the PGA of Canada's premier championship, and the inaugural Golf to Conquer Cancer charity event.
The 64-person match play championship, which took place from June 24-27, featured live scoring administered by the PGA of Canada staff and provided thousands of golf fans around the world with a front-row seat to all of the exciting action. Ultimately, it was Dave Levesque of Pure Golf Experience in Quebec City who came out on top, with a 2 up victory over Bill Walsh of Fairtree Golf Centre in Ontario in the final match.
This year's championship was also significant because Bill Walsh earned an exemption into the RBC Canadian Open at The Royal Montreal Golf Club following his win in the semifinals.

"Our goal is to provide all of our users with a world-class golf experience, be they the PGA of Canada, a private country club, a public golf course, The First Tee or a group of friends playing in a league. The PGA of Canada was able to keep their members and golf fans across the world informed with up to the second standings for each match."
