Metro regular James Hahn wins Canadian Tour event

Alameda's James Hahn, who can be found practicing often (and being very friendly and generous with golf tips) at Metropolitan Golf Links, shot a final round 66 to win the TELUS Edmonton Open.

"There is an unreal feeling about all of this," Hahn said. "I came over here last year and gave myself two or three years before I would even start contending. I didn't expect a win to come so soon although you dream about it all the time."

Hahn collected $24,000 for the win.

Hahn, who played for UC Berkeley (which makes its home at Metro) shares the course record (64) at Metro.

Congrats, James!
