Pettersson Secures RBC





Carl Pettersson of Sweden wrapped up the RBC Canadian Open after firing home rounds of 60 and 67 over a magnificent weekend of golf, Pettersson finished one shot ahead of second place Dean Wilson.

Wilson had been leading the Open with a four shot lead at the conclusion of the third day however he stumbled through the final round finishing with a  71 whilst the Swede continued his charge for the title.

Petterson only managed to make the weekend cut by one stroke which left him a lot of work to do, this was helped by a fantastic round of 60 taking him right back into contention.

The Swede managed to string together six birdies in a row on the back nine which allowed him to bogey the final hole and still take the championship, the fourth of his PGA tour career. Commiserations for Wilson though who had lead through the previous 54 holes but will still be happy with a tour second place finish.

Luke Donald finished on 12 under to hold onto third spot, the only Englishmen in the top 50.
