Dave Levesque Does it Again!
Wins Cleveland Golf / Srixon Ontario PGA Assistants’ Championship presented by SUNDOG

(Pelham, Ont., - August 4, 2010)
– Dave Levesque (Academy at BraeBen) capped off an incredible three-week stretch of golf by claiming his third victory and adding another $4,000 to his bank account. Levesque’s final round 7-under-par 64 was good enough to edge first round co-leader Billy Walsh by one shot at Peninsula Lakes Golf Club.

“I actually didn’t have any expectations coming into this event,” said a tired Levesque following his victory. “I almost didn’t make it yesterday but I am very glad I did,” added Levesque.

Levesque’s recent run includes earnings of over $32,000 as well as some pretty prestigious hardware. On July 11 he won the VIA Rail Canada Cup with today’s runner up, Billy Walsh (Beacon Hall) which put $10,000 in his pocket. This past weekend he won the first annual Canada Cup in Montreal which netted him $18,000 and today’s victory cheque was worth $4,000.

With the new found money you would think Levesque’s desire to take his game back to the next level would increase. Levesque, however, is quite comfortable in his role as a teaching/club professional.

“I know that life and I am not interested in doing it again,” said Levesque. “I am just going to keep working on becoming the best golf professional that I can be and really focus on that,” added Levesque.

Levesque becomes the ninth mutli year winner and the sixth champion to defend his title in the 56 year history of the Assistants' Championship. That list of successful defending champions includes Canadian Golf Hall of Famers George Knudson as well as Bob Panasik.

Piero Poletto (The Country Club) was the early leader in the clubhouse with his solid round of 6-under-par and joining Poletto for a brief period was Jerry Hinds (Heritage Hills) who also moved up the leaderboard with a solid round of 5-under-par.

The shot of the day came thanks to Alex Green (Oakdale Golf & CC). Green hit a three wood from 271 yards on the 12th hole of the day to drain the first albatross (double eagle) of his career.
