PETERBOROUGH, Ont. -- Mark Hubbard captured his first PGA Tour Canada title on Sunday, firing a final round 5-under par 66 to win The Wildfire Invitational presented by PC Financial.
Hubbard won by two shots over Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ont., and Kyle Stough.
The 24-year-old Hubbard made a clutch 15-footer for birdie at the par-5 16th to reach 20-under par and give himself a three-stroke advantage at the time, then parred the final two holes to secure his win.
"I had to be in the moment and really had to focus on each shot, so the whole thing hasn't really kicked in yet," said Hubbard. "The putt on 16 was one of the best putts I've ever hit in my life."
With the victory, Hubbard moves to no. 5 on the Order of Merit, in position to earn one of the five Web.com Tour cards available at season's end.
Two shots behind in a tie for second, Hughes had a career-best finish while Stough matched his career-best set earlier this year at the ATB Financial Classic. Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., scored his fifth top-10 of the season and finished alone in fifth at 16-under par.
Hubbard's win moved him in position to earn one of the five Web.com Tour cards available at season's end, pushing out Times Colonist Island Savings Open winner Stephen Gangluff.
Riley Wheeldon of Comox, B.C., Wil Collins, Joe Panzeri and Hugo Leon are the top four on the PGA Canada Tour's Order of Merit.
With an 18-under total in a tie for second, Hughes captured Canadian Player of the Week honours for the second consecutive event, following up his honour from The Great Waterway Classic last week.
