Gusting winds up to 40 km/h could not stop Eric Hawerchuk. The young professional fought off the weather to earn his second win in the National Division of the Circuit Canada Pro Tour at the Victoriaville Golf Club on August 21.

Hawerchuk, who calls Barrie, Ontario home, had a final round 68 to post a 269 (-19) for the rounds of the Sani Marc Canada Cup. That gave him a four stroke margin over Quebec golfer Marc-Étienne Bussières who had to settle for second place on his 30th birthday.

Ontarians Colton Kalkanis and David Markle finished tied for third at 274 (-14).

For the win Hawerchuk took home $30,000 and says he succeeded despite being nervous early in the final round, noting that the atmosphere of the event, with large crowds, a big volunteer base and complete organization should help him prepare to play the game on a higher level.

Of interest in the field this week was the presence of LPGA Tour member Maude-Aimée LeBlanc. The Sherbooke, QC native placed a respectable 13th at -8. She will be in the field this week at the CP Women’s Open in Calgary.

The Subway Cup, awarded to the best amateur golfer, went to John Kim of North York, Ontario. he shared 29th place with a total of 286 (-2).
