MacDougall goes back-to-back at Alberta Match Play
Brendan MacDougall of the Glencoe Golf & Country Club successfully defended the Alberta Match Play Championship title after defeating Brady McKinlay of Lacombe Golf & Country Club 1 UP in the final match. McKinlay brought the match back to all square heading to the eighteenth tee. But after an errant fairway bunker shot left him in a tough green side position MacDougall was able to close out the match with a solid bunker shot and a conceded putt for victory.
MacDougall beat opponents Andrew Harvie, Matt Bean, Tyler Saunders and the young gun Brady McKinlay en route to the title. He was down early in three of the four matches but clawed his way back with consistently strong play throughout the closing holes.
With the victory MacDougall secures a spot on the 2019 Morse Cup Team at the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship. He will also be competing on Team Alberta at the 2018 event this July at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.
Special thanks to tournament host Silver Springs Golf & Country Club and all of the staff and volunteers.

With the back-2-back victories he is exempt into the 2018 & 2019 @PacificCoastAm championships!
