Wilson melts down; gives away Canadian title

Reports compiled by Karin Stanton | Hawaii 24/7 Contributing Editor

After three spectacular and record-setting rounds, Mauna Lani Resort PGA Touring Pro and local boy Dean Wilson let the Canadian Open title slip away Sunday at St. George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto.

Carl Pettersson, of Sweden, won his fourth PGA Tour title a day after shooting a tournament record 60. He followed that up Sunday with a 67, finishing one stroke ahead of playing partner Wilson with a 14 under 266.

Pettersson started the day seven strokes behind Wilson, who had a four stroke lead over the entire field, but wound up with a 2-over 72 to finish second at 13-under 267.

Wilson admitted he was disappointed that Pettersson wrestled control away on the back nine, but was still pleased with his runner-up finish.

Pettersson earned $918,000, while the Castle High School grad pocketed $550,000.

Luke Donald (66) was third at 12 under.

Athough he was the only top 15 player to shoot over-par Sunday, his top 10 finish means Wilson has qualified for this week’s The Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia.
