BROMONT, Québec Davis Lamb continues his remarkable run of form, capturing his second consecutive victory at the Québec Open powered by Videotron Business. With an outstanding final round, Lamb emerged as the champion, solidifying his status as a rising star on the PGA TOUR Canada.

Lamb’s Dominance

Davis Lamb showcased his exceptional skills by shooting a scintillating 7-under 63 at Golf Château Bromont, finishing with a remarkable total of 22-under 258. His impressive performance earned him a one-shot victory over David Kim, who carded a closing round of 62. Lamb’s exceptional display of golf places him in a prime position to secure automatic membership on the Korn Ferry Tour.

Back-to-Back Wins

Just three weeks ago, Lamb fought his way into the tournament as a Monday qualifier. Now, with consecutive victories on the PGA TOUR Canada, he finds himself on the verge of Korn Ferry Tour membership. Following his win at the ATB Classic in Edmonton, Lamb’s triumph at the Québec Open makes him the first back-to-back winner since Tyler McCumber in 2018. A third victory this season would grant him instant promotion to the Korn Ferry Tour.

Reflecting on his recent success, Lamb commented, “I’ve just been trusting my game. I think both these courses have suited me very well. It’s a premium hitting the fairway and controlling my spin into the greens. I didn’t overcomplicate things. I kind of took advantage when I had the opportunity and just made pars when I had to.”

Fortinet Cup Standings

In addition to his tournament victory, Lamb has claimed the top spot in the Fortinet Cup standings. This season-long points race awards a $25,000 bonus and full status on the Korn Ferry Tour for 2024 to the winner. Lamb’s commanding lead of 407 points over Canada’s Étienne Papineau puts him in a favourable position to secure this coveted prize.

Thrilling Finishes

Brian Richey of Lakeland, Florida, closed with a solid 65 to secure a third-place finish at 19-under 261. Carr Vernon of Poplar Bluff, Missouri, displayed impressive form with a final-round 63, elevating him to fourth place at 17-under 263. Chris R. Wilson, the top Canadian in the field, secured fifth place with a 16-under 264 total.

Canadian Performances

Among the Canadian contingent, Chris R. Wilson led the way with his strong finish, securing a commendable fifth place. Étienne Papineau made a remarkable surge on the final day, shooting a 63 to vault 18 spots and tie for 16th place. Overall, 11 Canadians made the cut, showcasing their talent on home soil.

Promising Future for Lamb

Davis Lamb remains focused on his journey and is determined to maintain his exceptional play. Although he is on the verge of Korn Ferry Tour status, Lamb remains level-headed and committed to his game. He expressed his gratitude for the confidence he has gained through his recent successes and eagerly anticipates the challenges that lie ahead.

The Québec Open powered by Videotron Business provided golf enthusiasts with an enthralling competition and a fitting conclusion to an exhilarating tournament. As the PGA TOUR Canada season progresses, all eyes will be on Davis Lamb to see if he can continue his remarkable streak.
