Montréal, August 27, 2020 – The Elm Ridge Country Club was host from August 24 to 27 to the Men's Match Play Championship presented in collaboration with Turkish Airlines and belairdirect. The event featured 48 amateur and 16 seniors. Divided into groups of 16 for the three rounds composing Phase 1 of the tournament, our competitors had to accumulate as many points as possible for their team in order to determine who would advance to Phase 2 featuring a regular match play format.

Danny Turbide crowned in the senior division
In the senior semi-final, this Wednesday, Danny Turbide (Royal Québec) won his first match 2 up against Jean-Guy Garnier, also of Royal Québec, while Luc Guilbault (Cerf) defeated Michel Labelle (Île de Montréal) with a score of 6 & 5. Turbide then defeated Guilbault to take the senior title at 4 & 3.

Loick Laramée, amateur match play champion

In the amateur category, eight players made it to Phase 2 of the tournament. Alexis Clément (Drummondville) first eliminated Frédéric Rousseau (Pinegrove) in the quarterfinals and Jean-Philippe Parr (Ki-8-Eb), Québec's newest junior and juvenile champion, in the semifinals. Loick Laramée (Royal Québec) defeated Brandon White (Camelot) in the quarterfinals and Félix Bouchard (Vallée du Richelieu) in the semifinals. This Thursday morning, they met in a duel for their final match which Laramée won with a score of 2 & 1. Clearly, the Royal Québec players stole the spotlight this week!

The Golf Québec team would like to thank the Elm Ridge Country Club and its members who made this event possible, this week.
