WINDSOR, ONT.: An Estevan golfer has won a national golf title.

Jayden Dudas, who is in his first year with the Medicine Hat College Rattlers, won the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association men’s championship on Friday in Windsor, Ont., with a three-round total of 211 which was 2-under-par, finishing three strokes ahead of his nearest competitor.

He was also named a tournament all-star. The Rattlers won the bronze medal in the team event.

Dudas shot a two-over par 73 in the first round, and was 1-over-par through 15 holes in the second round. But then he birdied the 16th and 18th holes in the second round to finish with a 1-under-par 70, and sit at 1-over for the tournament.

His final round was his best. Dudas birdied the third, seventh and eighth holes for a 33 on the front nine, and then had a 35 on the back nine, to shoot a 3-under-par 68.

It’s the latest accolade for Dudas, who was named the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Male Golfer of the Year and the Male Golf Rookie of the Year earlier this month.

Dudas graduated from the Estevan Comprehensive School in 2020 and was a long-time member of the junior golf program at the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course.
