MacDougall triumphs at the Alberta Match Play
Brendan MacDougall defeats Emmett Oh 2 up in the 2017 Scott Venturo Rudakoff LLP Alberta Match Play Championship final.
The top seed from the Alberta Open Championship defeated four opponents on the way to his eventual victory.
The talented 19-year-old from the Glencoe G&CC has been on a hot streak of late. He finished in fourth place at the Glencoe Invitational a week ago and took low amateur honours at the Alberta Open earlier this week. When asked about his feelings once he won the final match, he said “it was awesome. It was kind of just a wave of relief that went over me that said ‘it’s finally over. I can go take a break.’”
The 2017 Team Alberta High Performance Squad member enjoyed the competition this week and the challenge of the match play format. MacDougall said “my opponents were fantastic. This morning, I had an awesome match with Logan. So much fun. Then in the afternoon, Emmett and I just grinded it out. Luckily, I came out on top.”
Matt Williams of the Glencoe G&CC defeated Logan Carver of the Calgary G&CC in the consolation final 2 up.
MacDougall becomes the second member of the 2018 Pacific Coast Amateur Championship Alberta Morse Cup Team. He joins Emmett Oh on the team, who he defeated in the final. Oh claimed the first team position by finishing as the low Albertan at the Glencoe Invitational. The third and final member of the team will be the Alberta Men’s Amateur Champion. The squad will compete at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California next July. MacDougall said “I’m very excited. I have heard great things about the tournament. I know that it’s a wonderful field with amazing players. I’m happy to go to San Francisco and play the Olympic Club.”
