Team Ontario Wins Back to Back Titleist Cup
- First time in 25 Years-

(Quebec City, QC., - October 8, 2010) – Team Ontario has successfully defended their title to win the 2010 Titleist Cup at Royal Quebec Golf Club. Lead by Captain Gar Hamilton, the Ontario team came roaring out the gates to take an early 4 point lead after the morning fourball matches.

“I was really proud of our guys this morning, they played extremely well,” said an exuberant Hamilton.
Ontario maintained their lead after the foursome matches winning three of a possible six matches.  Lead by Titleist Cup stalwart Ken Tarling and Quebec native Dave Levesque, Ontario was able to maintain the momentum from the morning 9 hole fourball matches.

“Kenny played well for us and I think a lot of the guys feed off watching Ken and his tenacious attitude at the matches,” explained Hamilton. “Dave was like a secret weapon for us, he worked at Royal Quebec for six years and was able to impart a lot of course knowledge on to our team,” added Hamilton.

Tarling and Quebec native Dave Levesque had perfect records on the day, which saw a slight modification the typical Titleist Cup Matches. Due to inclement weather on Thursday which saw Royal Quebec become unplayable, the matches were converted to 9 holes of fourball, 9 holes of foursomes and 9 holes of singles matches.

Team Ontario has not won back to back titles since 1986 which was also the last time Ontario won on Quebec soil. The 2010 matches will return to Ontario in 2011 with a site to be officially named in the coming weeks.
