Zibrik and Dagg made a par on three consecutive playoff holes in the alternate-shot format to outlast the team from Victoria Golf Club of Lindsay Bernakevitch and Peter Jawl. Both teams posted 18-hole scores of 4-under-par 68 in the 2-person best ball format.

Zibrik earned $1,000 for the win while Dagg was awarded the top amateur prize, a set of PING i525 irons. Bernakevitch, a two-time past champion of this event (2015, 2017), cashes $850 for their second place finish while Jawl takes home a PING G425 Max Driver. All professionals whose teams finished among the top 18 earned a piece of the $6,000 Professional purse while their respective amateurs took home a piece of the $6,500 prize table.

Why did you become a PGA of Canada Professional?
Golf has always been in my blood, even when I tried hard to shake it and pursue other pathways and careers, I still ended back here at golf. Teaching has become a big part of who I am , and redefined my contribution to the game. I love teaching the hardest game in the world to people that have no idea what they are getting themselves into.

Who has influenced your career the most, and how?
I would have to say my late coach, Leo Zampedro, has indirectly influenced my passion and love for teaching. He is the one that got me into the game and he poured his heart and soul into me, so I am trying to do the same for my students.

What career path led you to where you are today?
I was a player first and foremost, had many health challenges starting at the age of 17. Despite that, I pursued a professional career for 8 years, and was finally forced to stop.  At the time, fortuitously I was offered a job as the Assistant Coach at my alma mater, Stanford University. I coached for 3 years, and then had the itch and wanted no regrets, so returned to playing but my health didnt hold up, and then had to make more decisions of what to do. All paths led me back to golf!

What is your most cherished golf memory?
 I would have to say winning tournaments in front of my family was pretty special. They all (parents and brothers included) sacrificed so much for me to be able to do what I loved. So being able to win some big events in front of them was really special (especially now when looking back).
