John Hall makes PGA of Canada - Ontario Zone debut winning 2017 CFM Championship


August 24, 2017
PORT COLBORNE, ON -- The PGA of Canada - Ontario Zone held their 2017 CFM Championship at Port Colborne Country Club yesterday and a hand full of players really put the pedal to the metal and carded some low scores. John Hall was the best of the best leading the way winning his first career PGA of Canada - Ontario Zone event.
John Hall is a relative newcomer to the Association, dominating the 2016 Playing Ability Test finishing fifteen strokes under the required score, but he wasted no time making a name for himself within the CFM Player of the Year division. Hall finished with seven birdies on his way to a 5-under 67, besting CFM POY series heavyweight Chris Bevan by one. 
"I hit the ball really well today but it was my putter that made the difference," Hall said after accepting the CFM Championship trophy. "I made a lot of putts. There were a lot of par saves and I made some crucial birdie putts." While his putter might have been the most obvious aspect of Hall's game that contributed to his victory, it's what is between his ears that he leans on the most. "I rely a lot on my mental game more than anything, I think I'm pretty good at staying calm whether I'm over par or under par. I try to enjoy the round no matter the score. I've been successful in the past keeping that calm domineer and I think it's one of the strongest elements to my game and helps me reach those low numbers."
The newly renovated Port Colborne Country Club turned heads this week. Established in 1929 PCCC maintains its rich history while new ownership and General Manager Tom Vanderlip have catapulted it back into a premiere golf destination that should certainly be on your list of places to play. Hall had never played PCCC before but he didn't let that get in his way. Despite high winds coming in from Lake Erie, Hall maintained his play, keeping a calm head and led a pack of players who put up some really impressive scores. Six players were even par or better and four of those players were under 70. Chris Bevan (68), David Sheman (69), Jakob Montemurro (69), and Cory Racioppo (71) rounded out the top five. 
Enertor performance insoles joined the PGA of Canada - Ontario Zone this year as a partner and they will be continuing to partner with John Hall by covering his entry fees for the PGA Assistants Championship of Canada held in Richmond, BC. Not only will Hall have his entry fees taken care of but he will be a player to watch in the National Championship wearing Enertor's D30 technology in their performance insole, reducing impact injury and maximizing energy return.
